  • Three dead, two missing after group of tubers plunge off 8-foot dam along N.C. river

All four had non-life-threatening injuries, authorities told the station.

While it is not unusual for people to float the Dan River on tubes, most people choose to get out of their inflatable rafts and walk around the dam, Cates said, adding that visitors are discouraged from tubing near the dam.

Three people are dead and two people, including a seven-year-old, are still missing after going "tubing" on a river.

Rockingham County Sheriff's Office said in a tweet that there was a search and rescue operation in place from the Duke Energy plant to Virginia state after five tubers went missing on Wednesday.

"We want to find these people and make sure they are OK but we also would like to ask you to say a prayer for the family".

According to Lt. Kevin Southard of the Rockingham County Sheriff's Office, the tubers may have fallen over the dam.

While the group set out on the river on Wednesday, authorities were not alerted to the situation until Thursday.

"So far they have not been located". As of Thursday night, four individuals who were spotted by Duke Energy workers were recovering in the hospital.

While four tubers were rescued, three others were found dead and two remain missing.

"We have done both an air and water search at this time", Rockingham County Emergency Services Director Rodney Cates told Winston-Salem, North Carolina, ABC affiliate WXLV Thursday evening, prior to the three victims being found.

Cates said that the rescued tubers spent the night floating in the water near the dam before they were found clinging to the tubes.

Cates said the search for the two still missing was suspended late Friday afternoon and would resume Saturday.
