Shiloh

K9 Shiloh drowned in Lake Cumberland as his handler investigated a boating accident involving a houseboat at the Jamestown Marina on Lake Cumberland.

After tying up in one of the boat slips his handler boarded the houseboat to speak with the occupants as part of the investigation. As he prepared to finish the investigation one of the occupants informed him that Shiloh was attempting to get out of his patrol boat. As he returned to his boat to check on Shiloh the woman's daughter informed him that Shiloh jumped into the water after she released his collar because she believed he was choking.

Shiloh's handler immediately ran to his boat and pushed it out of the slip, believing Shiloh was trapped between the boat and the dock. Despite searching the area for over one hour Shiloh was not recovered until a week later by the Jamestown Fire Department Water Rescue Unit.
