South Carolina Doctor’s Death Cause Revealed

Anderson, SC – The Anderson County Coroner’s Office has provided updated information regarding the death of a local doctor who was discovered at the bottom of Lake Hartwell. The incident occurred on Monday evening, prompting authorities to respond to Lake Hartwell and Midlake Heights Drive around 8 p.m.

The victim was identified as Dr. Marshall Meadors III, a 65-year-old resident of Anderson. According to investigators, Meadors was found submerged in approximately 8 to 10 feet of water and had been missing for about 30 minutes before being located. He was promptly transported to a nearby hospital, where he was later pronounced dead.

The coroner’s investigation suggests that Meadors may have been electrocuted, leading to his drowning. Exposed wires were discovered on an electrical box supplying power to the dock area where Meadors had been swimming. The shock caused by the faulty wiring is believed to have contributed to the tragic accident.
