Two Drowning Deaths Confirmed

Laramie, Wyo. – Albany County officials say two-drowning related deaths have been confirmed.

On Friday, 21 month old Alex Dalles died after wandering from his family's ranch west of Laramie. And on Sunday, 28 year old Wheatland resident Steven Kendrix's body was recovered by rescue divers in Johnson Creek Reservoir. Both incidents have been ruled as accidental drowning's.

So far, Wyoming has fended off major flooding. However, officials caution that a great deal of snowmelt is still on the way, and rainfall could also affect efforts to fend off water.
