In another incident on Thursday, a 24-year-old man named Thomas Milner was electrocuted when he jumped off a dock into the lake near Lanier Beach South Road in Forsyth County. Despite efforts by a family friend and neighbors, Milner couldn’t be saved. He was rushed to Northside Forsyth Hospital but succumbed to his injuries.
