Buffalo officer / diver’s funeral tomorrow

Local News

Two of Erie’s finest will head to Buffalo tomorrow to pay their respects to the Buffalo Police Officer who went missing during a routine diving exercise in the Niagara River.

The body of police diver and K-9 officer Craig Lehner was found by the Police Underwater Recovery Team.  34-year-old Lehner was stranded in the water after a cable connecting him to his dive team broke. 

Emergency crews and the United States Coast Guard in Buffalo searched the waters for days before finding Lehner.  The Buffalo POlice Department says his military and police funeral will be held at 10am tomorrow at Keybank Center in downtown Buffalo.
