Recovery crews remain committed
Recovery crews set out this morning on the Chattooga River on day seven of search, rescue and recovery efforts for the body of Thomas Hill. It was Wednesday last week that the Tampa, Florida resident fell from a raft. “We’re bringing in two search dogs from Georgia, as well as an additional underwater camera, to continue looking for Mr. Hill,” said Incident Commander Scott Loftis. “Greenville County Sheriff’s Department will be searching from the air this morning. We’re also using South Carolina Fire Fighter Mobilization—SCFFMOB. They’re supplying resources from Cowpens, Laurens and Greenville for operations today.” The plan today was to start at the Sockem Dog Rapid and working down the river to cover areas where the body could be.
