Three Idaho residents were electrocuted in an irrigation ditch — a woman after apparently trying to rescue a dog and two men who went into the water in an attempt to rescue her.

Bingham County officials found the bodies in the water Thursday about three miles northwest of Blackfoot.

Sheriff's Capt. Mark Crowley said 31-year-old Jacquelyn Paulson was reported missing at about 9:30 p.m. when she didn't return from a search for the family dog.

Two Blackfoot men — 41-year-old Michael Lance Hicks and 49-year-old Preston Keith Tarpley — apparently went in the water to rescue Paulson and also were electrocuted.

Crowley says an irrigation pump in the area had shorted out.

Paulson was an assistant track and field coach at Idaho State University.
