A death investigation is underway at DeSoto State Park on Lookout Mountain after a man drowned at DeSoto Falls.

Deputies tell us it happened around 6:30 p.m. The body has been taken out of the water.

This comes just days after a man was killed at DeSoto Falls after he crossed protective barriers and went cliff-jumping. The park superintendent told us that death was the first at the falls in three years. Now they have two deaths there in the span of a week.

Authorities are still investigating the deadly incident.
