WATCH: Sinkhole Evaluation on Spring River

FULTON COUNTY, Ark. - Several state agencies are reported to be working together to further evaluate a sinkhole on the Spring River that proved deadly earlier this month.

Since the June 9 accident claimed the life of a Central Arkansas man, the Arkansas Game & Fish Commission has advised anyone who ventures into the river to avoid the area near Sadler Falls (Fulton County). 

The area is roped off, as you can see in the attached video produced by Brainstorm Marketing on Monday.

The state agencies who convened at the site Monday to work on a solution for the dangerous area used dye to help track the extent of the sinkhole.

Donny Wright, 64, of Searcy died when he was pulled under by a whirlpool created by the sinkhole while trying to help another man in the same situation who had actually made it out safely.
