Little River drowning
A man from Rome, Georgia, drowned at Little River Canyon Park in DeKalb County on Saturday. Park Ranger Larry Beane says 19-year-old Ricardo Perez and friends were trying to swim across Little River, but he slipped under the water at Martha’s Falls. He was eventually found just before 9 PM in nine feet of water. The National Park Service warns against crossing the Little River because of the underlying force of the water generated by movement down the rocky falls and ledges.
