Around 4:15, DNR was requested to respond to George L. Smith State Park. According to the call, a canoe had capsized. Georgia DNR Ranger Morgan Attaway and his partner entered route, and a third ranger was dispatched. DNR searched the area boaters were last spotted. Negative contact led Attaway to request first responders, fire, and other emergency personnel. A considerable fleet searched the pond in unison, and the male and female boaters were recovered at approximately 5:15 without injury.
