Anthony Johnson jumped into the river with a group of friends when the outrageous ‘Judgement Day’ prediction made by preacher Harold Camping failed to occur on Saturday evening. The 17-year-old who is now missing, was reportedly ‘overwhelmed by the current’ and cried for help as he was swept away by the Kalamazoo River in Comstock’s Merrill Park, Michigan.
According to reports, Johnson’s friends warned him not to jump because he wasn’t a good swimmer. Search and rescue teams were deployed on Saturday evening but there was no sign of him.
