One person died Saturday morning after drowning in the Amite River, according to the Livingston Parish Sheriff’s Office.
An LPSO spokesperson called it an accidental drowning. LPSO detectives are investigating.
The drowning is the latest incident to occur on the Amite River in recent weeks.
Last weekend, first responders rescued 15 tubers who were nearly swept away in the river’s strong current.
That rescue followed an tragic incident on Father’s Day weekend, when a Baton Rouge man drowned.
