MALVERN, Ark. (KTHV) - A main road in Malvern near the Acme Brick factory was blocked off by high water on Saturday.
The Malvern Swift Water Rescue Team had to launch from the area near Chapman Creek after water flooded onto Grigsby Ford Road near South Walco Road.
According to officials, a hunter had become trapped by rising water near this intersection earlier in the evening of November 28.
Hot Spring County has set up barricades warning drivers away from the area. Joey Norwood, an Assistant Chief with the Malvern Fire Department said that the hunter called the department after he realized the water had isolated him on some high ground. The victim knew he wouldn't be able to get his truck through the rising water.
The team launched a boat and managed to get him out safely.
