GREENWOOD CO., S.C. (WSPA) – A man drowned at Lake Greenwood Saturday night, according to Robert McCullough with the South Carolina Department of Natural Resources (SCDNR).

A call came in at about 7:00 p.m. Saturday.

According to McCullough, the man jumped off of a boat and never resurfaced.

He said it happened near the Puckett’s Ferry neighborhood.

McCullough told 7News there were other people on the boat when the man jumped off.

SCDNR and the Abbeville dive team responded to the scene.

The Greenwood County Sheriff’s Office set up a mobile command center at the scene near the Puckett’s Fairy dock and boathouse to assist in the search. 

More divers with SCDNR will be back on Sunday morning to continue the search, McCullough says.
