The swimming hole at Turner Falls Park has closed about a month early after two more people drowned at the popular tourist spot 70 miles south of Oklahoma City.
The swimming hole near Davis, which claims Oklahoma’s largest waterfall, closed for a few hours Monday, along with the Blue Hole diving board and slide. The park disputed reports about a drowning, saying the Monday closure was a precaution due to someone being reported missing in the area. It reopened Tuesday.
Two international students who were at the Turner Falls swimming hole drowned Tuesday. Police told The Associated Press that one man was struggling in a pool near the falls when a friend jumped in to help and neither resurfaced. They weren’t wearing life jackets.
