TCSO Working Third Deceased Person on Lake Travis This Year
Austin

At approximately 7:45 pm on July 4, 2022, TCSO Deputies responded to an Assist EMS call at Mansfield Dam Park. The patient had reportedly been rescued from the water of Lake Travis by family members and a bystander, and CPR was underway. The patient was transported via Starflight to a local hospital for treatment.

 

 

On July 6, 2022, the patient was pronounced deceased at the hospital. Detectives are investigating the circumstances surrounding the death, as is customary with any unnatural death on Lake Travis.
