Jones County firefighters rescue man from creek

Posted: Updated:
JONES COUNTY, MS (WDAM) -

A Jones County man is thankful to be alive after falling into a creek.

The Jones County Fire Council says the unidentified 64-year-old man tumbled approximately 35 feet down a steep embankment Monday. 

His wife alerted authorities. Volunteer firefighters from two units responded and rescued the man. 

"It's a good thing his wife found him when she did, and that he didn't try to float on down the creek," Glade Fire Chief Dan McKenna. "It could have been a different outcome."
