Tree falls on swimmers in Stafford

The Stafford Sheriff’s Office says on July 4th–late afternoon– first responders rushed to the area of Falmouth Beach on River Road after a tree fell onto swimmers in the Rappahannock River.
There were conflicting reports on the number of swimmers involved. Deputies believed there could be a person trapped in the water under the tree. As the drone flew over head and the Dive Team was alerted, first responders began a search through the leafy boughs. The Stafford Sheriff’s Office says all the swimmers were able to self-extricate and were not seriously injured. The swimmers were checked by medics and refused treatment.
