Water Rescue on Cadron Creek


On Sunday July 21st around 11:30 p.m., deputies were dispatched to Highway 285 N and the Cadron Bridge in reference to a possible water rescue.  Deputies spoke with Cassondra Adams who called dispatch, and advised deputies her husband James Adams, brother-in-law David Adams, and her son left around 7 a.m. on Sunday morning to float on Cadron Creek from Highway 65 to Highway 285 North.


David Adams subsequently arrived on scene and advised deputies he had made it back to the Cadron Bridge at 9:30 p.m., but neither David nor Cassondra heard from James.  David then told deputies the last time he saw James and his son, they were on inner tubes about two miles upstream.


Faulkner County Rescue Squad was dispatched to the Cadron Bridge and at 2:30 a.m. and launched their kayaks from Acres Circle in Greenbrier in search of James and his son.  At 5:00 a.m., the two were found on a embankment about a quarter mile upstream. Once they made it back to the bridge, James told deputies they lost sight of David Adams around sun down. They then floated to the wrong part of the creek where one of the inner tubes was punctured while they were caught in some rapids. They were able to make it to a embankment  where Rescue squad located them. Both parties were checked out and seem to be okay.
