An Acworth woman has died after authorities said she was pulled from Lake Alatoona Tuesday.
Debra Hansard, 46, was swimming with friends on Lake Alatoona Tuesday afternoon around one o’clock, according to the Cherokee County Sheriff’s Office.
“Some of the witnesses say they saw her floating in the lake,” said Lt. Jay Baker. “At first, I don’t think they believed anything was wrong. But then I think they did see something was wrong.”
When emergency crews arrived at the scene, near McCurley Road, Hansard had already been pulled from the lake and was being administered CPR. She was rushed to Kenneston Hospital and put on life support. Life support was later withdrawn and she died, Baker said.
Autopsy results are pending.
