Man drowns in Clinch River near Norris Dam

Posted at 8:33 pm September 7, 2012 by John Huotari

An elderly man drowned in the Clinch River Friday afternoon after his fishing boat capsized and he fell into the frigid water about a half-mile downstream of the Norris Dam, Anderson County Rescue Squad Chief Terry Allen said.

The victim’s name is being withheld pending family notification, Allen said.
The man’s body was found in the River Road boat launch area, about a half-mile downstream from where he was first reported in the water near a weir dam, Allen said.

The man was unresponsive when medics found him, Allen said. Medics administered advanced life support measures, such as CPR, but were unable to revive him.

Allen said the water depth in the area can vary from four feet to 18 feet, and the water temperature is about 55 degrees where the man fell in.
Allen said the Anderson County Rescue Squad and Anderson County Emergency Medical Services both responded to the 1:33 p.m. drowning.
“Every human has four endowments- self awareness, conscience, independent will, & creative imagination.
These give us the ultimate human freedom... The
to choose, to respond, to change.”
