Family Asking for Help in Search of Drowning Victim's Body
MCALLEN — The family of Andres Frias is begging the City of McAllen to allow outside divers to help in their search for his body. Frias was reported to have jumped into a canal last Thursday and rescuers believe the strong current pulled him underwater and into a underground drain pipe where they believe he drowned. Authorities searched for Frias and have not been able to locate his body and his family is seeking additional help by asking the public to sign a petition to have the city drain the canal or allow outside divers to go into the canal pipes. The city remains firm on the discontinuation of the search.
