Lake Lanier

A Gainesville man drowned at a residence in the Little River area on Lake Lanier Saturday, July 2.

The victim was identified Sunday as Frantz Joseph Scutt, 48, of Gainesville. 

Around 7:30 p.m. Saturday, Game wardens with the Department of Natural Resources responded to the possible drowning, Mark McKinnon of DNR wrote in a press release Sunday, July 3. 

The man was pulled out of the water by bystanders and transported to Northeast Georgia Medical Center in Gainesville where he was pronounced dead, McKinnon wrote. 

There have been five drownings in Lake Lanier this year, including this July Fourth weekend incident.
