Man drowns in creek

August 1, 2003

Decatur County - A man drowns in a south Georgia creek. It happened in Decatur County Thursday evening.

Twenty-one-year-old Daniel Lorenzona-Lara was swinging on a rope above Spring Creek at Brinson Bridge. He fell in the water and never came back up.

It took three hours for a dive team to find his body.

Friends of the migrant worker said he was a strong swimmer, but it was his first time swinging on the rope.
