    Police Officer Eric Mumaw drowned in the Cumberland River while attempting to save a suicidal woman.

    He and another officer had responded to the Peeler Park Greenway Trailhead after receiving reports that a woman in a vehicle was contemplating suicide. The officers located the vehicle and were attempting to speak to the woman when the car rolled down the boat ramp and into the river. As the officers attempted to pull the woman from the car they were both swept further into the river, which had a water temperature of 49-degrees.

    A third officer followed them as they were swept down the river and entered the river to rescue Officer Mumaw but was unable to reach him due to the freezing temperatures. Officer Mumaw's body was recovered several hours later.

    The woman escaped from the vehicle and was found on the river bank intoxicated. Charges are pending.

    Officer Mumaw had served with the Metro Nashville Police Department for 18 years.
