Grand Prairie Fire Department responds to possible drowning at Joe Pool Lake | North Texas

grand prairie, Texas — The Grand Prairie Fire Department responded to a possible drowning call at Joe Pool Lake on Saturday evening, June 8, 2024.

At approximately 5:03 p.m., a witness reported that one adult male was unaccounted for. 


The Grand Prairie Public Safety Dive team initiated a search until dark and resumed search operations on Sunday, though no update on the search has been provided by the Grand Prairie Fire Department.

Last month, the Grand Prairie Fire Department responded to a drowning call on May 5, 2024, near the swim beach area at Joe Pool Lake.

The Public Safety Dive Team conducted a search and rescue, in which the team located a male in his mid-twenties underwater, during that incident. The swimmer was then transported to a local hospital, where he was later pronounced deceased. The male swimmer was not wearing a life vest. 


 As the lake season begins, GPFD strongly encourages the public to wear a life vest or an appropriate personal flotation device near or in the water.
