A woman who drowned Saturday in the Beaver River has been identified as Pheran Hoschar, 29, of Beaver Falls, said Beaver County Coroner Teri Tatalovich-Rossi.

“She is a nonswimmer, and was in the wading part in the river, and the river dropped 14 feet,” Tatalovich-Rossi said Sunday.

The incident occurred about 12:30 p.m. Saturday. Her companions tried unsuccessfully to save her. The Beaver Falls Fire Department Diving Team recovered her body about two hours after being called.
