False alarm calls out emergency services


Drumheller RCMP, Drumheller Fire Department and Badlands EMS were dispatched to the Gordon Taylor Bridge after a report of a person jumping into the Red Deer River. Shortly after noon on Tuesday, September 15, a witness reported a girl in her late teens jumping from the bridge fully clothed. The Drumheller Fire Department did a visual search of the area before launching its department’s water rescue boat from Newcastle Beach to continue its search. The boat searched the water and shoreline, but came up with no sign of a person in the water. It was later discovered it was a false alarm.
