Authorities say alcohol was involved in the weekend drownings of two men in a Saline County pond. According to the sheriff`s office, 40-year-old Thomas D- Bradshaw of Benton reportedly got into a shoving match with his son over a mutual female friend. The two were at a friend`s house and the sheriff`s office says most of the people there were intoxicated. Bradshaw got into a car and drove around the yard recklessly before losing control of the vehicle, which crossed a driveway and traveled about 45 feet before going into the pond. The son, 20-year-old Keith Bradshaw, 20, and the resident of the house, 32-year-old Stephen Wayne Hall, tried to rescue the elder Bradshaw but both the elder Bradshaw and Hall drowned. The pond was about 12 to 15 feet deep and the water was cold. The car was located at the bottom of the pond. Authorities say it wouldn`t have taken long for the men to go into shock because of the cold.
