OUR FIRE BOAT ASSISTS CORNELIUS WITH DROWNING

Sunday, June 12, 2016  Earlier our fire boat operated on Lake Norman assisting Cornelius Fire and Rescue with a possible drowning (off a dock on Island Forest Drive). Patient was quickly located underwater (approximately 10' of water) by Cornelius fire fighters and moved onto shore. Patient was transported to the hospital by MEDIC.*UPDATE 6:20pm* All fire crews were released from scene by command (Cornelius Fire). The scene was turned over to the Cornelius Police Department and our boat returned to Huntersville. 

Sad Update: at 8:25pm Cornelius Police announced the incident on Lake Norman was fatal and that the patient has passed away. Our thoughts and prayers are with the friends and the family of the victim.
