Three survive close calls at lake

Staff Writer

Three people who were rescued from strong waters are lucky to be alive after their boats capsized at Grenada Lake.

The Grenada County Sheriff’s Department responded to two separate incidents, one involving a 92-year-old man and his 77-year-old female companion.

Sheriff Alton Strider said that at around 1:15 p.m. Saturday, deputies were dispatched to the Old River Run, on the southside of the spillway, where a small boat had overturned in the water.

“When deputies arrived, they discovered a woman holding on to a branch in the water,” Strider said.
