By Public Information Officer Clay Myers
August 2, 2017

Gamber & Community Fire Co. water rescue units and Sykesville Freedom District Fire Department's Rescue Squad 12 were alerted for a possible water rescue in the vicinity of the Rt. 32 bridge over the Liberty Reservoir at Morgan Run on Tuesday, August 1, 2017. A passerby reported seeing someone jump off the bridge. Units were dispatched at 3:06 pm. EMS 13-1 Weishaar had command.

Gamber and Sykesville personnel remained on the scene at the bridge and a boat was launched from the boat ramp on Mineral Hill Road. Baltimore City's Foxtrot helicopter assisted in the search and a scent dog was requested but later cancelled prior to arrival.

Witnesses on the opposite shore were interviewed. After a sweep by the boat and observation from the shoreline, no victim was found. Baltimore Environmental Police released all units just after 4:30 pm. The bridge was closed for just over an hour during the operation.

Units: Dive 13, Boat 13, Boat 13-1, Utility 13, Engine 134, Duty 13, Medic 139
 
Mutual Aid: Sykesville Rescue Squad 12, Sykesville Chief 12-2, Baltimore Environmental Police, Baltimore Foxtrot Helicopter, Carroll County Sheriff's Office
