    Crews search Philly river for teen who jumped in

    Rescue crews in Northeast Philadelphia and Swedesboro, N.J., are looking for two teenagers who disappeared in separate incidents. Authorities are combing waters to find them.

    A teenager jumped into the Delaware River last night in Holmesburg to save his friend and a cousin, as Action News report. Good Samaritans were able to save the other two teens, but the third remains missing. A few hours later, police began the search for a 15-year-old, who went under in Gloucester County’s Raccoon Creek and did not resurface.
