Mother, son drown in Pine Creek

A mother and her 7-year-old son both died from drowning in Lycoming County Tuesday.

The Lycoming County coroner says Lorissa Reiff and Adam Reiff, 7, both of Lebanon County, were swimming with their family in Pine Creek.

Adam reportedly got caught in the current and pulled under the water.

Trying to save him, Lorissa also got caught in the current and pulled under, according to authorities.

Officials say Lorissa was taken out of the water and transported to Jersey Shore Hospital. She was later transferred to Geisinger Medical Center where she died.

Crews located Adam in the water and performed resusitative efforts while he was taken to Geisinger Jersey Shore Hospital.

The coroner says he was pronounced dead at the hospital around 4:45 p.m. Tuesday.

This is an ongoing investigation.
