Chickasaw National Recreation Area

National Park News

Members of a group swimming in a stream near Veterans Lake Creek on the afternoon of June 29th reported than an eight-year-old girl was having difficulty swimming. Gregory Barker, 32, of Shawnee, Oklahoma, went into the water to assist the young girl, but soon got into trouble himself. Bystanders pulled Barker from the water and CPR was begun on him when emergency personnel arrived on scene. Murray County EMS transported Barker to Arbuckle Memorial Hospital, where hospital staff pronounced him dead shortly after his arrival. The girl whose life was saved was treated and released. Park rangers Kane Seitz and Sue Thompson are investigating; Dale Culver was the IC.
