Three people drowned yesterday in two separate incidents.
The first happened in the Staunton River in Campbell County. Seven year old Christian Antonio James and 37 year old David Emanuel Brown both drowned in the river at Long Island Park.
The boy was in about 10 feet of water when his family noticed he was struggling. His father and Brown both tried to save him. But neither Christian nor Brown were able to get out of the water.
Police say both bodies were recovered.
Meanwhile in Danville, a man's body was found last night at the bottom of the pool at the Travel Inn on West Main Street.
The hotel manager and a witness pulled 26 year old Tarey Wilson out of the water, but rescue workers were not able to revive him.
Foul play is not suspected.

He's three under for the tourney. One of the guys at four under par, Todd Hamilton had the shot of the day. Take a look at what is almost a blind shot out of the fairway on the 7th hole.
