The second drowning in the Sacramento River in two days. The Shasta County Sheriff's Office has confirmed the body of a 14-year old girl was just recovered. The girl was swimming in the river near Sims Flat Campgrounds south of Castella when she went missing Friday about 2:00 p.m.
According to Sheriff's deputies her body was pulled from the river about 7:45 p.m.
The girl reportedly went under some rapids and never came up. Her name has not been released.
A young man presumably drowned on the Sacramento River at the Woodson Bridge near Corning on Wednesday. He, too, was swimming, went under water and did not resurface. His body has not been recovered.
