    October 17, 2011 No comments

    Authorities say divers planned to resume a search Monday for a 68-year-old man in a wheelchair who fell into a Georgia lake while getting off a large boat.

    Rescue crews told Fox 5 Atlanta that divers have been searching Lake Allatoona during the weekend after the man fell into the water. Authorities say the man, Tommy Moore of Plainfield, Ind., was at the lake to attend a family reunion.

    Sgt. Mike Barr of the Georgia Department of Natural Resources said Moore was getting off a large boat to return to a dock, and the boat separated from the dock and Moore fell into the water.

    Barr said there were about 20 people on the boat, and two of them jumped in immediately but weren’t able to find Moore.
