Cherry Creek State Park Water Rescue/Recovery
Posted On: May 03, 2021

Just before noon on Sunday, May 2, 2021 SMFR received calls for a kayaker who fell into the water at Cherry Creek State Park. Within minutes Local members arrived and were able to obtain multiple reports of the person’s last known location. Members from the Dive team started an extensive shore-based search fighting through near-zero underwater visibility and incoming storms. The Incident Dispatch Team launched a drone to obtain an overhead perspective of the water. Sadly, after over 90 minutes of search efforts, the mission changed from rescue to recovery. Park rangers dispatched the Marine Evidence Recovery Team and continued the search via boat, utilizing their underwater drone equipped with sonar, lights, and a video camera. At 3:39 p.m., the person was located and members helped with recovery.

There were initial reports of a dog with the person, but responders could not confirm the presence. Rangers searched diligently for the animal and were unable to locate the dog.
