Tullahoma Man Drowns in Tims Ford Lake

A drowning has taken the life of a Tullahoma man at Tims Ford Lake.

TWRA officers responded to a drowning around 12:15 p.m. on Saturday afternoon. The TWRA reported a man in his 50’s voluntarily jumped from a pontoon boat near Wiseman Bend in Franklin County and went missing.

A remote operated vehicle (ROV) was used by TWRA investigators, but standing timber complicated the search and it was suspended after sunset.

The search resumed on Sunday and the body of Anderson Clark III, 48, from Tullahoma, was recovered after an extensive search. His body was located by a TWRA underwater remotely operated vehicle (ROV) and recovered by divers with the Franklin County Rescue Squad.
