NASHVILLE (AP) — Two people drowned and a third person was seriously hurt in accidents on Tennessee waterways this past weekend, wildlife officials said.
All three incidents took place Saturday on lakes and rivers in Middle Tennessee, the state wildlife resources agency said in a news release.
In Hickman County, a fisherman drowned after losing his footing while wading in the Duck River and getting pinned underwater against a tree.
Officials said bystanders performed CPR on a 77-year-old man who fell from a pontoon boat on Percy Priest Lake, near Nashville. The man was taken in critical condition to a hospital, the agency said.
At Tims Ford Lake, searchers using an underwater remotely operated vehicle found the body of Anderson L. Clark III on Sunday.
Clark, 48, had voluntarily jumped from a pontoon boat into the water near Wiseman Bend in Franklin County on Saturday, officials said.
