Teen in rising creek rescued

WTCFPD report

On Monday, May 27, at 4:53 p.m. Western Taney County Fire Protection District (WTCFPD) Technical Rescue Team responded to Bull Creek at the end of Elizabeth Drive for a report of a 14 year old male stuck on an island in the middle of the creek with water rising.

Upon arrival team members located the teen and began rescue operations. Two swimmers were deployed to the island with ropes and set up a rope system so a rescue boat could be pulled to the island and retrieve the victim. The victim was successfully brought to the shore and was not injured. The operation took approximately 1 1/2 hours. WTCFPD was assisted by the Missouri State Highway Patrol (MSHP) water rescue team.
