PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — Two brothers drowned while swimming Monday at Kelley Point Park in Portland.

Rescue crews told KGW (http://bit.ly/osTKRK ) that 24-year-old Kissan Kumar started struggling and his brother, 21-year-old Ram Kumar, went in to help him. Both disappeared. Divers found the bodies about an hour-and-a-half later.

Warm weather has attracted people to the sandy beaches at the north Portland park where the Willamette and Columbia rivers meet.
