Two bodies recovered from Lake Cumberland
By Mary Ellis
Two bodies presumed to be the two men in their 20s who had been missing since Friday, June 5, 2020 from the Low Gap area of Lake Cumberland, were recovered in the early hours of this morning, Monday, June 8, and turned over to the Russell County Coroner for positive identification.
According to H.M. Bottoms, sophisticated equipment picked up on images Sunday afternoon and the rescue effort continued until early this morning. Search and rescue teams recovered the bodies around 2:15amCT in the vicinity of Low Gap between Jamestown Marina and Wolf Creek Dam.
The tragedy occurred Friday afternoon when the two men, accompanied by two women were swimming and their houseboat started drifting. The men were reportedly trying to retrieve the boat when they went under and did not resurface. The investigation is continuing by the Russell County Coroner's Office and the KY Department of Fish and Wildlife. Volunteers from across the state, as well as numerous members from Christian Aid Ministries assisted with the recovery.
