Because of last night’s storms, the current was swifter than usual today in an Athens creek where authorties rescued a 12-year-old girl who had fallen in Sunday.

The girl was playing on a bank when she suddenly fell into the creek behind Elmwood Apartments. She reportedly grabbed onto a limb after drifting about 40 yards down the creek. Athens Fire and Rescue responded after getting the call just before noon. Responders formed a human chain to rescue her and pull her out.
