More Information


A woman died early Sunday after falling from a dock early Sunday on Lake Wylie and colliding with a metal bar, Charlotte Mecklenburg Police said.

The woman, who has not been identified pending notification of kin, fell around 2:30 a.m. from a dock in the 16000 block of Here at Last Lane in Charlotte.

She landed on a metal pipe that was sticking out from the ground below.

“We’re looking to see that nothing inapproproiate happened but at this point, it just looks like a sad accident,” said CMPD Capt. Todd Lontz.
