A volunteer diver died at a local hospital after she suffered an unspecified injury during the search for a man who evidently was swept away in a rain-swollen creek at Fort Hood.
Lori Pohanka-Kalama, a volunteer with the Morgan’s Point Resort Dive Team, was pulled from House Creek Saturday and taken first to Carl. R. Darnall Army Medical Center and then was flown to Scott & White Medical Center in Temple, where she died early Sunday morning.
"Lori was a tremendous asset to the Morgan’s Point Resort Police Department and the community we serve and she will truly be missed all, the Morgan's Point Police Department said in a Facebook post.
Dozens of people posted messages of sympathy on the Morgan’s Point Police Department’s Facebook page, many of them on behalf of other dive teams and Fire Departments.
The Harnett County Underwater Search & Recovery Dive Team sent a message that said “R.I.P. Officer Lori Pohanka-Kalamah....May calm seas and fair winds carry you on your next journey...we have it from here.”
