A dev­as­tat­ing inci­dent occurred at the Rain­bow Lake Trail in East Ten­nessee, where two hik­ers lost their lives in what author­i­ties have described as a “trag­ic accident.” 

The vic­tims, a man and a woman vis­it­ing from Geor­gia, were part of a fam­i­ly group hik­ing in Rain­bow Lake Wilder­ness Park when the acci­dent took place.

The group encoun­tered a large creek approx­i­mate­ly a mile into their hike, and as one of the female hik­ers attempt­ed to cross, she fell into a sub­merged “hole” or drop-off and went underwater.

In an effort to res­cue her, a male hik­er jumped into the creek but was also pulled under the water.

First respon­ders, includ­ing the Sig­nal Moun­tain Police and Fire Depart­ments, arrived at the scene and jumped into the water to res­cue the vic­tims. Unfor­tu­nate­ly, their efforts were unsuc­cess­ful, and the woman was pro­nounced dead. A dive team was called in to recov­er the sec­ond body from the creek.

The Sig­nal Moun­tain Police Depart­ment has stat­ed that the inci­dent is being treat­ed as an acci­dent. Rain­bow Lake Trail is a pop­u­lar des­ti­na­tion for hik­ers and is locat­ed about 20 miles north­east of the Geor­gia state line. 

The trag­ic event serves as a sober­ing reminder of the poten­tial dan­gers of out­door activ­i­ties and the impor­tance of safe­ty precautions.
