Woman's body recovered from Farmington River

Posted: Updated:

NEW HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) -- Connecticut officials are working to identify the body of a woman they pulled from the Farmington River, about three miles downstream from where a New Hartford woman was reported missing after falling out of a raft.

A woman walking her dog reported seeing the body in the river on Saturday morning, near a line separating Canton and New Hartford. Emergency workers who were searching for 33-year-old Rachel Greene responded immediately. Authorities were unable to identify the body at the scene and it will be sent to the chief medical examiner's office for positive identification.

Police say Rachel Greene fell into the water last Saturday after the raft she was in hit a rock and capsized.

She was in a party of two rafts that entered the water at about 2:30 a.m. Three men swam to safety.
