WVLT Saturday July 8, 2017

The body of 73-year-old Peggy McDaniel has been found after she was swept away by flash flooding in Cummins Falls near Cookeville Wednesday night.

Storms caused several rivers and lakes in the area to quickly rise.The water rose three feet within three minutes.

Crews from White County, Smith County and Jackson County worked to rescue the 35 to 40 people stranded Wednesday, including 27 around the falls area, three in the middle of water on a small island and 10 downstream.

Everyone was rescued except for a 73-year-old woman. The search for the woman was called off at nightfall Wednesday, but it resumed Thursday morning.

WTVF in Nashville reports that on Friday evening, Peggy McDaniel's body was recovered.

Crews also found the body of another woman at Cummins Falls Sate Park on Thursday. She was identified as 45-year-old Lisa Michelle Tufts-Hillian and her family says she went to the park to help look for McDaniel. The investigation into Tuft-HIllians death is ongoing, however, family members say an investigator told them that she slipped and fell into the water where she drowned.
