DeKalb County Sheriff Nick Welden confirms search and rescue operations have been temporarily postponed for a reported lost swimmer at High Falls in DeKalb County. Emergency services were dispatched to High Falls Park Monday evening to reports of a missing swimmer.
DeKalb County Sheriff Nick Welden said of the incident: “We urge the public to use extreme caution in and around water in heavy rain and flooding conditions. These waters are very deceptive and fast currents in the surface are hard, if not impossible to see. We never want to have these kinds of calls.” Fisher Rescue Squad, High Falls Park Staff, The DeKalb County Sheriff’s Office, Geraldine Rescue Squad, Geraldine Fire Department and DeKalb Ambulance Service will resume operations as soon as water levels allow.
