  • Two people drowned over the Fourth of July weekend. On Friday, a 65-year-old Seattle man at Twin Lakes died after he went for a swim, then called for help and vanished under water, according to the Kootenai County Sheriff's Office. On Saturday, a 25-year-old Spokane Valley man fell into the water and drowned in the Spokane River in Post Falls. He died Sunday morning. Alcohol appeared not to have been a factor in either drowning. (Spokesman-Review)
