Emergency responders pulled a man believed to be in his 40s from a creek in the 7600 block of Blessings Avenue in Northeast Austin. That's just south of Anderson Lane and west of Cameron Road.
Firefighters pulled the man from the Buttermilk Branch of Little Walnut Creek around 6 p.m., but they were not able to revive him. The medical examiner is determining the man’s cause of death.
Police said the creek’s water flow is higher than normal because of afternoon showers in the area, but officers couldn’t say if high waters contributed to the death.
