Search for missing Hamilton Pool swimmer to resume Monday

Update 7:17 p.m.: A dive team will resume its search Monday at noon for a Hamilton Pool swimmer who disappeared beneath the water before 5 p.m. Sunday afternoon.

Officials called off the rescue attempt Sunday evening after six rescuers with three local agencies were unable to find the man. According to witnesses, the man, believed to be in his 20s, was walking in the water when he suddenly became distressed and went under, said Travis County sheriff’s office spokeswoman Kristen Dark.

Hamilton Pool is close to 30 feet deep towards its center, officials said.

Dark said the pool was crowded Sunday and silt stirred up by swimmers made it difficult for rescuers to see underwater.

The pool will be closed indefinitely while an Austin police dive team continues searching Monday, Dark said.

In August, a 17-year-old Harker Heights teen died a day after being pulled from the water at Hamilton Pool.

In March, a man was taken to the hospital with injuries not considered life-threatening after nearly drowning at the pool.

Earlier: Rescuers were unable to find a male swimmer who was last seen by bystanders at Hamilton Pool around 4:45 p.m. and have transitioned to what Austin-Travis County EMS called recovery mode led by the Travis County Sheriff’s Office.

EMS Commander Mike Benavides said six rescuers tried to locate the swimmer, but called off the rescue effort around 5:30 p.m. Benavides said that Hamilton Pool is around 30 feet deep towards its middle. A Travis County Sheriff’s Office dive team is expected to conduct a thorough search for the body.

This story will be updated with more information as it becomes available.
