VICTORVILLE – Authorities have identified the man who died as a result of a Victorville flood as 41-year-old Victorville resident, Michael Douglas Williams. At around 5:55 p.m. on the evening of Friday, February 17, 2017, during a period of heavy downpour, two Victorville residents were driving in the area of Pebble Beach Drive and Hughes Road. The vehicles were swept away by the fast-moving flood water. Deputies from the Victorville Station, the Sheriff’s Dive Team, and the San Bernardino County Fire Department responded to the location.

When they arrived they located 46-year-old Jerry Parker, of Victorville sitting on top of his vehicle as the water moved quickly around it. The Sheriff’s helicopter, 40 King 3 arrived to the scene to assist. Hovering over Parker and his vehicle, the helicopter hovered low, the detective on board grabbed Parker and pulled him safely into the helicopter. Parker did not sustain any injuries as a result of the incident.

Michael Williams was located inside his almost fully submerged vehicle. Emergency personnel including the Sheriff’s Dive Team and San Bernardino County Fire Department Swift Water Rescue Team attempted to rescue Williams from his vehicle. Williams was pronounced dead at the scene and despite the dangerous conditions, Fire and Sheriff’s personnel, risked their safety to pull his body from the flooded vehicle.
