ATHENS, Tenn. — Emergency responders are investigating a drowning at a former quarry in McMinn County.
Multiple news outlets report rescue crews recovered the body of 31-year-old Warren McLean Dougherty of McMinn County at the Blue Cove Hideaway near Athens Tuesday. The man jumped off a cliff into the water — and never resurfaced.
Sheriff Joe Guy says crews found his body a few hours later.
The Blue Cove Hideaway is an abandoned rock quarry that is a popular spot for swimming and cliff jumping.
