AFD/EMS respond to teen that was in underwater drainage ditch at Robinson Park

Three people have a dramatic story to tell this afternoon after being pulled under in a drainage ditch.
Fire Chief Russell McGlamory said his department responded to a call that a teen was drowning on Walker Avenue.
The teen had been paddleboarding in a drainage ditch that runs from Walker, underground, and through Robinson Park.
The teen was pulled into the underground drainage ditch. His brother attempted to rescue him and was pulled under, and his father soon followed.
All escaped injury. Both the AFD and Advanced EMS responded to the scene.
At approximately 2:30 p.m., the Covington County EMS sent an alert reporting that there will be an additional 3 to 5 inches of rain this afternoon. Please take all precautions.
