LONG LAKE — A man drowned in an Adirondack Mountains river after police said he was swept down the rocky Buttermilk Falls and pinned by the current.

State police said 20-year-old Nicolas Padilla lost his footing Saturday as he and a friend were climbing up the rocks at the side of the falls.

They say it took emergency responders about three hours to pull the Buffalo man’s body from the Raquette River in Long Lake.

The town of 711 people sits in the vast Adirondack Park, about halfway between Albany and Montreal.

State police say their investigation is continuing.
