Yesterday afternoon shortly after 2pm, Vermilion Parish Sheriff deputies were dispatched to what was at the time a possible drowning at a canal bridge located on Charlie Field Road in Erath.

Upon arrival it was learned that an 18-year-old Erath resident and his juvenile cousin were fishing when the 18-year-old fell into the canal and never resurfaced.

Members of the Sheriff’s Marine Division and divers responded as well as responders from the Erath and LeBlanc Fire Departments and began search efforts.

After a short search, the body of the 18-year-old, Brett Dyson of Erath, was retrieved from the canal and pronounced dead by the Vermilion Parish Coroners Office.
