Sinkhole in Spring River Causes Whirlpool, 1 Dead

FULTON COUNTY, Ark. -- Arkansas Game and Fish says a sinkhole in the water led to a deadly boating accident.

The sinkhole opened up in the Spring River below Sadler Falls in Fulton County.

It created a whirlpool Saturday and officials say that's what led to the accident.

Engineers will be on site this week investigating.

The area has been roped off. The river is still open but people are asked to avoid the barricaded area.
