“3 of our guys were on the SW side of a flowage. we found a shoe earlier and we knew it was Mr. Flagg’s shoe so we focused our efforts in that drainage, we had a dog in there, we had 3 wardens, they came on to him. Mr. Flagg was conscious, he was talking he was dehydrated. EMS is with him now, He’s gonna be transported now for an examination. really good outcome, as good as it gets. I really want to thank all of the volunteers, all of the local folks we just had an amazing crew out here. You never know with these and you cant give up on these folks and he was a tough guy and good outcome. " says Ward.
