On the night of the tragic boating accident that killed 9-year-old Jake Prince on Lake Lanier and left his 13-year-old brother Griffin missing, it took several minutes before emergency dispatchers could determine where to send help. Calls for help on the night of the wreck depict panic and confusion as emergency responders worked to find victims stranded on the lake in the dark after a fishing boat collided with a pontoon boat carrying 13 people. According to recordings by the Hall County 911 Center, it took crews more than 30 minutes to locate the wreck and reach the scene.
