Alabama LODD During Search/Rescue

April 26, 2015, 03:30:31 PM CCF Administrator

An Etowah County (NE of Birmingham) Rescue Squad member has died in the Line of Duty as a result of injuries during a search for a missing kayaker in an Etowah County creek. Squad Member Vicky Ryan, 46, died last night at Riverview Regional Medical Center. Ryan, along with three rescue squad coworkers, was injured when two boats capsized during a search on Big Wills Creek.

WHAT HAPPENED?

A 25-year-old man was out kayaking with family members about 1107 hours yesterday (Saturday) in Big Wills Creek when he was swept into the water. The man went missing near an old low head dam that was once used to pump water into the Gulf States steel mill nearby.

The Etowah County Rescue Squad began a search, and employed two rescue boats. One of the boats got too close to the dam and was swept over the side. The second boat soon followed and nine Rescue Squad workers were cast into the creek. Members of the Gadsden Fire Department and the Etowah County Sheriff's Office assisted in rescue efforts.

One other worker was taken to Riverview, and two more to Gadsden Regional Medical Center. Fire medics have still not located the missing kayaker. Members will maintain a presence in the area overnight and resume searching tomorrow, but will not attempt any more recovery efforts tonight. Water levels were already high at the creek because of spring rains, which also made the current especially dangerous. Our condolences to all those affected. Rest in Peace.

Take Care. Be Careful. Pass it On.
