WARREN, Pa. — A Pennsylvania man is facing charges shortly after his boat capsized in the Allegheny River in Warren County, Pa.

Pennsylvania State Police and Warren City Police were called Sunday at 8:30 p.m. to a report of a man yelling for help near 16 Driftwood Drive in Pleasant Township, just outside the city of Warren, Pa.

Upon arrival, police learned that a boat had capsized in the river behind the residence and that those on board had become separated. Two people, including 60-year-old Samuel Oyler of Kane, Pa., were evaluated by first responders but declined further medical treatment, state police in Pennsylvania reported Monday.
