A firefighter found the body of Dylan Knopsnider, 21, on Sunday. Knopsnider was swimming with friends at Jacobs Creek in Westmoreland County on Tuesday when he jumped into the water and never resurfaced. Knopsnider's family shared with Channel 11 their gratitude for the Murrysville Dive Team and Dawson firefighters who helped recover his body. "He was approximately 300 feet downstream from where he was last seen," said Billy Colbert, chief of Dawson Volunteer Fire Company. Dawson firefighters, several Allegheny County agencies and the Murrysville Dive Team pulled Knopsnider's body out of the creek near Creek Falls just before 9:30 a.m.
