SULLIVAN, Mo. (AP) — A 25-year-old Overland man has drowned in the Meramec River.
The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported that Nicholas Spangler downed Friday night while rope swinging on the river at a campground in Sullivan.
Authorities said Spangler had a history of seizures and that may have caused the accident.
The death was the fifth drowning on the Meramec River in three weeks.
