ALBANY, GA (WALB) - The drownings of D.J. Vinson and 11 year old Joshua Perry have prompted the city to take a close look at the dangers the Flint River presents. Tonight, they're considering erecting warning signs.
Emergency Management Deputy Director Jim Vaught talked with city Attorney Nathan Davis today about the legal issues involved in putting up warning signs, or even making it illegal to swim in the river at the downtown park area.
Diving and safety experts who know the Flint River say that is an extremely dangerous stretch, filled with holes and caves, with undertow and shifting currents too strong for even the most experienced swimmer. EMA Deputy Director Jim Vaught said "So we have already made some contacts with the legal individuals for the community, and see about the procedures to put up signs, and we are looking to do that right now."
Vaught said depending on legal issues that the City and County Attorneys find, the warning signs against swimming could go up soon, before another tragedy happens.
