Boy Missing in Pennypack Creek Presumed Dead

The search for 13-year-old Brandon Boyle, who has been missing since jumping into Pennypack Creek near Winchester Avenue and the Boulevard yesterday afternoon, resumed this morning as a recovery effort. Brandon, who was playing in the creek with his brother Anthony and two friends, apparently misjudged the strength of the current and was swept over a waterfall into a churning whirlpool. [6ABC]
