Swollen river sweeps elderly man to death

Date Posted: 2007-06-21

A muddy stream became a river as torrential rains fell non-stop Sunday and Monday, sending a Nakajin Village man to his death.

Prefecture Police say Seiko Oshiro was reported missing Sunday afternoon, shortly after he waded into the swift flowing current to urinate. He was reported missing by a friend accompanying him. The friend told police Oshiro went waist-deep into the water, then disappeared. The men had reportedly been drinking prior to the incident.

The 61-year-old Oshiro’s body was recovered by rescue workers at 10:20 a.m. Monday.
