Second Franklin teen dies




The second teen injured in the Big Blue River last week has died.

Michael Chadbourne, 16, of Franklin, died just before 2 a.m. today.

He had been on life support while his family and doctors made arrangements to donate his organs.

Chadbourne was one of four Franklin teens who went over the dam of the river in Edinburgh on Friday to try to help their friend, who was swept over the dam by the strong current.

Two were able to get out of the water, Chadbourne and Sarah McLevish, 16, were rescued unconscious, and Jason Moran, did not resurface.

Moran's body was found on Sunday and a memorial service is planned for today at Franklin Community High School. McLevish is still hospitalized.

Chadbourne's death was reported by the Marion County Coroner's Office to the Indiana Department of Natural Resources, which is investigating the incident.
