Edison man drowns in Pennsylvania quarry
LOWER MOUNT BETHEL, Pa. (AP) — Police have recovered the body of a New Jersey man who dived into a quarry in Pennsylvania and failed to resurface.
Police say 19-year-old Jonathan Baksh of Edison was swimming with a group of friends in the Martin Creek quarry in Lower Mount Bethel when the accident occurred on Monday afternoon.
The Morning Call reports Baksh was one of 80 people to jump into the quarry on Monday.
The Northampton County coroner has yet to release a cause of death.
Baksh is the second New Jersey resident to die in a an Eastern Industries quarry; a Ridgefield teen died in June.
