(WBNG Binghamton) The National Park Service reminds neighbors to wear their life jackets when swimming, even in seemingly shallow waters.
The reminder comes after the second drowning in the Delaware River in three days -- and the fourth this summer.
The Service says Adriano Pacheco, 41, of Portugal, drowned in the Skinners Falls area Saturday afternoon.
The site is between Damascus Township and the Town of Cochecton.
The Service says Pacheco went swimming with a friend, around 2:30 P.M., between the falls and the bridge.
It estimates he got about 50 yards across the river before the current took him.
Pacheco was recovered just before 6:15 that evening.
Neither he nor his friend were wearing life jackets.
The Service says Pachecho was visiting family in Amityville on Long Island, and they went to Skinners Falls to camp for the weekend.
Daniel Rak, 18 drowned nearby last Wednesday.
The Service says he was camping at Ten Mile River Boy Scout Camp, and was not wearing a life jacket either.
It reminds everyone not only to wear their life jackets, but also to not try to fight the current when swimming.
Instead, let it take you and eventually, it will push you to shore.
The Service says the current is deceptively strong and there are sudden drops offs.
