University of Idaho student drowns at Dworshak Reservoir

DWORSHAK RESERVOIR - A University of Idaho student lost his life Saturday at Dworshak Reservoir.

According to the Clearwater County Sheriff's Office, 18-year-old Preston Vorhauer drowned Saturday afternoon after he attempted to swim to a small island near the Freeman Creek boat launch. A dive team was sent into the area to search for Vorhauer after it was reported he had not been found. A spokesperson for the Clearwater County Sheriff's Office said no alcohol was involved in the accident. Due to limited visibility in the water, it took the Clearwater County Dive Team several hours to find his body.
