Biloxi police and fire responding to possible drowning near Hiller Park
A little after 4:15 p.m., the Biloxi Police and Fire Departments responded to Hiller Park, just west of the boat launch on Atkinson Road for a report of a possible drowning.
When officers arrived the male, in his 50’s, had already been pulled from the water and was receiving lifesaving medical treatment.
It was determined that the man was walking and appeared to have stumbled causing him to roll into the water. Citizens nearby saw him not moving in the water so they rushed to his aid. Once on land he received treatment and was transported to a local hospital for further evaluation.
