DROWNING VICTIM RECOVERED IN FEATHER RIVER

DROWNING VICTIM RECOVERED IN FEATHER RIVER
Paradise, CA- On Tuesday, June 18, 2019, at approximately 6:50 p.m., the Butte County Sheriff’s Office (BCSO) received a 911 call from a woman, who was at the end of Dean Road in Paradise, stating her boyfriend had just been swept away by fast-moving water in the West Branch of the Feather River. The Butte County Sheriff Search and Rescue Swift Water Rescue Team responded, with the assistance of CAL FIRE Swift Water Rescue Team. The Rescue Teams searched the water but were unable to locate the man.
On Wednesday morning, June 19, 2019, at 6:00 a.m., the search resumed with Butte County Sheriff Search and Rescue, CAL FIRE, and a CHP helicopter also assisted in the search. At approximately 11:22 a.m., the male was located, unresponsive in the water, approximately a quarter of a mile downstream from where he was originally swept away. The man was pronounced dead at the scene. Identification of the man is pending notification of next of kin.
Due to the heavy rains this winter and spring, and the high snow pack, water in all Butte County waterways is still extremely swift and dangerous, and the Butte County Sheriff’s Office wants to remind citizens to use extreme caution when visiting any waterway in our area.
