Accident Description


8/17/94 Dicks Creek Ledge; Sect III

With the river around 10 feet due to a tropical storm, a 20-year old Piedmont, SC man launched a raft at Hwy 28 with three others. Their raft flipped at Dick's Creek, which is the last time that the victim was seen alive. His body was found two days later (by helicopter) in a log jam on the upstream side of the island by Sandy Run Rapid. The victim’s PFD was found away from his body.
