A father and son drowned in the Wissahickon Creek Friday in the 7500 block of Forbidden Drive.
A 13-year-old boy named Jordan Luciano entered the creek at around 2:40 p.m. on Friday when witnesses on the creek’s edge noticed him struggling with the current.
His father, Pete Luciano, 41, went into the water to help his son, police said.
Neither the father nor son emerged again from the creek until their bodies were found later downstream. Both were pronounced dead at the scene.
Pete Luciano lived in the 1300 block of Gowen Ave. in the Cedarbrook section of Philadelphia.
