The Bibb County Sheriff’s Office and members of the Macon-Bibb County Fire Department and the Georgia Department of Natural Resources responded to the park to assist with an investigation of a possible drowning incident just after 4:42 p.m.

Witnesses reported three men came to the park and decided to swim. The three men swam against the current to an area where the rocks were visible above water. When two of the men made it to the rocks, they noticed the third man was struggling against the current. The two men attempted to help the third man but lost sight of him. 911 was called and Emergency Personnel arrived on scene to search for the third male.

The dive teams stopped the search at around 7:30 p.m. The search will continue on Thursday morning. The names of the three men will not be released at this time.

Anyone with information about this incident is urged to call the Bibb County Sheriff’s Office at 478-751-7500.
