Mo. trooper drowns in Ark. training for triathlon

Washington County authorities say a Missouri State Highway Patrol sergeant has drowned in Lake Wedington while training for a triathlon.

Authorities told reporters that 43-year-old David Finley was swimming in the lake Saturday when witnesses saw him struggle and disappear under water. His body was found Saturday night in about 20 feet of water.

Finley was training with others who were to compete in the Ozark Valley Triathlon.

Triathlon officials have announced on their website that the triathlon has been canceled.
