CORALVILLE, Iowa – DNR Conservation Officers responded to a diving rock on the Coralville Reservoir on Saturday, May 25, around 4:30pm, where a group of approximately 15 teenagers were gathered and one had been rescued after jumping into the water and nearly drowning.

A passerby boat noticed a male that could not swim and was struggling to stay above the water and stopped to rescue the male. The male was transported to a local hospital once the DNR and Johnson County Sheriff’s Office arrived.

A DNR Conservation Officer charged a 14 year old female after the officer found drug paraphernalia.

It is against Army Corps of Engineers rules to jump off the rock into the water.

NOTE: A criminal charge is merely an accusation and the defendant is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty in a court of law.
