Date and Time:  8/5/2012    Location:
Along the Beaver River
Taylor Township
Lawrence County

Poloka was swimming with friends in the Beaver River at area about half way between Wampum and West Pittsburgh in Taylor Township on Thursday. He started having trouble while trying to swim across the river and friends saw him go under the water. They immediately called 911 and rescuers rushed to the scene in attempt to save the victim. It was soon learned that it would be a recovery mission. His body was found a short distance downstream a few hours later.

On Sunday, friends and relatives gathered to remember and honor Ronald Christopher Polaka, forming a circle while holding candles and individually expressing their memories of the victim. A fund to help raise money for funeral expenses has been set up at First National Bank of Pennsylvania in his name.
