COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) - Columbus Police confirm that divers are in the Chattahoochee River near the Bibb City Mill looking for a 43-year-old man who was swept away in the waters.
Police say the man went under the waters off Linden Point.
A dive team has been in the water since 7 PM, searching for a man whose name officials are not yet releasing.
According to police, a group of people were swimming off the RiverWalk when the victim apparently stepped off into a deep spot. Investigators say his friends tried to help him and get a hold of him but the strong, fast-moving current pulled him away.
