A 21-year-old Lake Dallas man drowned Saturday afternoon after jumping from the cliffs overlooking the Guadalupe River across from the Preiss Heights subdivision.
The man, a student in Austin whose name the Comal County Sheriffs Department could not release pending notification of relatives, died around 3 p.m. after hitting the water face down horizontally in his third jump from the cliffs, said Sgt. David Ott of the Sheriff’s Department.
Emergency personnel and divers from Seguin recovered the body about 5:45 after a search lasting several hours. The body was discovered under the 40- to 50-foot cliff in a 60-foot-deep spot in the river just upstream and across the river from Preiss Heights Park off Ervendburg Avenue. The man jumped despite signs warning against such activity, Ott said.
The man’s girlfriend, suffering from shock, was transported to McKenna Memorial Hospital by ambulance.
One of the between seven and IO friends on the river with the man said bubbles surfaced after he hit the water and disappeared.
