Sheriff Rodney Arbuckle would like to announce the rescue of a fisherman from Toledo Bend. On July 9, 2015 at about 10:36 p.m., DeSoto Parish Sheriff’s Office was contacted by a subject who stated a local fisherman had not been seen or heard from in some time. Dispatchers were able to identify the subject and notified deputies of the call for service. Deputies began search and rescue operations and requested assistance from the Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries. The DeSoto Parish Sheriff’s Office rescue boat was deployed in conjunction with a LDWF boat. Sheriff Arbuckle and other deputies searched an area of the lake, locally known as Tucker Lake, where they believed the missing fisherman may have been fishing. Sheriff Arbuckle and deputies were able to locate the missing subject in this area at about 01:08 a.m. It was later found that the individual had fallen out of the boat while wearing a personal flotation device (PFD), also known as a life jacket or vest. Upon trying to re-enter the boat, the subject suffered a heart attack and was unable to get in the boat or call for assistance. Sheriff Arbuckle and deputies pulled the man from the water and returned him to land. DeSoto EMS were contacted and EMS personnel tended to him before he was transported for treatment. ReadMore...
