Man drowns in Platte River


Officials conspicuous an Omaha male died Sunday night after being pulled
from a Platte River nearby Two Rivers State Park.

Antonio Velazquez, 22, was conspicuous passed during a Nebraska
Medical Center about 45 mins after being pulled from a river
around 6:30 p.m.

Witnesses conspicuous they primarily didn’t know what was happening.

“All of a sudden, we listened people yelling, ‘Call 911!’  We
saw dual people pulling a lady by a arms,” said
Michael Young, who attempted to help.

Velazquez wasn’t respirating when he was pulled out of a stream by
members of a church organisation he was with.  Others did their
best to help.

“I grabbed my phone to call 911.  Of course, we got no
signal, so we ran to burst in my lorry and go to a main
office.  we reported that we need an ambulance given there
was a physique pulled out of a river,” conspicuous Gabe Goodall.

“That’s when we ran over.  There were substantially 5 or 6 of
us.  We all rotated and achieved CPR , perplexing to do what we
could until a EMTs showed up,” conspicuous Young.

It took about 12 mins for a EMTs to arrive, given a park
is in such a remote area of Douglas County.

“We’re so distant out and they can’t expostulate onto a sandbar.  It
was a plea for them and for all a people here not knowing
what to do,” conspicuous Elliott Silva, who attempted to help.

A medical helicopter rushed Velazquez to a mishap center, but
he didn’t make it, according to a Nebraska Medical Center.
