23-year-old man drowns while fishing in New River

FAIRLAWN — A 23-year-old Montgomery County man drowned Wednesday while fishing in the New River.
Pulaski County Sheriff Jim Davis said Samuel Matthew Harless of Shawsville was fishing with a friend, and while wading in the river under the railroad trestle off Hazel Hollow Road, Harless went under the water and failed to resurface.
Sheriff’s officers and emergency services personnel were summonsed to the scene around 1:30 p.m. and located Harless’ body a short time later.
According to reports, a train was stopped in the Dublin area while emergency services officials walked out onto the trestle to get a good look at the river. They were able to pinpoint the location of the victim from their vantage point so a boat could retrieve the body.
Harless was transported to New River Valley Medical Center by Regional Emergency Medical Services Inc. (REMSI).
Radford City Police and Radford Fire and Rescue assisted with the case.
