Her name and age are being withheld until next of kin are notified. The death remains under investigation by the Hall County Sheriff’s Office.
Along with the Sheriff’s Office, personnel with Hall County Fire Services, the Georgia Department of Natural Resources (DNR) and the U.S. Army Corps responded to the scene.
