LAKE OF THE OZARKS – Another swimmer has been electrocuted at the Lake of the Ozarks.  A 26-year-old Hazelwood woman died over the weekend when a current of electricity hit the water.  She was swimming with two children, who were not injured.

The victim is identified as Jennifer Lankford.

Her death follows the Fourth of July deaths of siblings Alexandra and Brayden Anderson.  The 13-year-old girl and her 8-year-old brother were electrocuted while swimming near a private dock.  The patrol cited an improperly grounded electrical circuit as a contributing factor in their deaths.
