A member of the Jefferson County Rescue Squad is in stable condition after taking in too much water trying to rescue a drowning victim.
John "J.D." Clevenger was responding to a drowning Monday near the Inspiration Point boat dock in the Muddy Creek area of Douglas Lake.
Clevenger was trying to rescue a Knoxville man who witnesses say slipped under the water and didn't resurface. That man was later pronounced dead.
Paramedics took Clevenger to UT Medical Center where he is recovering.
