BPS: Deceased Florida Man Recovered in the Flint River


On Thursday, April 1st at 8:20am, Bainbridge Public Safety, Decatur County Fire and Rescue, Decatur-Grady EMS, the Decatur County Sheriff’s Office, and the Department of Natural Resources were dispatched to the Bainbridge Marina in reference to a truck partially submerged in the river.  Upon arrival, First Responders could see the truck almost completely covered in water and located next to the “island” of land near the end of the boat ramp.  Efforts were made to reach the truck and we are saddened to report that a Florida man was found inside, deceased.  Deputy Coroner DeWitt Phillips has identified the man who died as Jesse Fudge Jr., age 80, of Havana, Florida.
