An Okmulgee man is listed in critical condition after he nearly drowned Monday afternoon at Robber’s Cave State Park.
Jared Wilson, 44, was said to have been swimming at Deep Ford Creek when he apparently started struggling in the water.
According to the OHP, a group of people along with lifeguards tried to pull him to shore but Wilson was said to have started fighting with them. Two Latimer County deputies jumped in the water and assisted in getting Wilson to safety.
He was taken to Latimer County General Hospital then flown to St. John’s Hospital in Tulsa.
