Front Royal man dies after falling into river

Daily staff report

A Front Royal man was pronounced dead after falling into the South Fork of the Shenandoah River near the low water bridge in Bentonville on Wednesday.

Warren County Fire and Rescue officials responded to the scene on Indian Hollow Road just before 5 p.m., according to Fire Marshall Captain Gerry Maiatico.

"We received a report of cardiac arrest at the low water bridge," Maiatico said. "A male subject had fallen into the river and was rescued by his wife and a nearby construction worker, who immediately started CPR."

According to a Warren County Sheriff's Office news release, Jeffery Vaught, 53, "was transported to Warren Memorial Hospital where he was pronounced dead."

It was determined, after the Sheriff's Office investigation, that Vaught had been retrieving water for his livestock, Maiatico said.

"Right now it appears to have been an accidental incident," he added.

The news release stated that the exact cause of death will be determined by the state medical examiner's office.
