At approximately 5:52 p.m. on Sunday, May 8th, the Grand Prairie Fire Department responded to a report of a possible drowning at Joe Pool Lake. The Grand Prairie Public Safety Dive Team conducted a search and rescue, in which the team quickly located the swimmer underwater. The male swimmer was then transported to Methodist Mansfield Medical Center, where he remains in critical condition.
The male swimmer was not wearing a life vest.
As the lake season continues, GPFD strongly encourages the public to wear a life vest or an appropriate personal flotation device when near or in the water.
