Three Rescued From Car Swept Down River

Little River Canyon National Preserve

National Park News

A family of four was attempting to drive across the rain swollen Little River last Thursday evening when their vehicle was swept downstream. At daylight, one of the adults swam to the riverbank and walked out, reporting the accident about 8:30 a.m. Rangers began a hasty search, locating the vehicle approximately 100 yards downstream from Hartline Ford. A coordinated rescue was begun with personnel from the park, Fisher Rescue Squad, and Adamsburg Fire Department, supported by two Alabama State Police helicopters. The two children, ages two and four, and one adult were safely airlifted from the vehicle. They were taken to the DeKalb County Hospital for evaluation.  All four were treated and released. Ranger David Walker is investigating. Charges are pending.
