GIBSON COUNTY, Tenn. — One man was airlifted and another taken by ambulance to local hospitals after being found semi-conscious Thursday at the Humboldt Fish Hatchery.

Their names are not being released pending the ongoing investigation. Anyone with information relevant to the case is asked to call the sheriff’s office at 731-855-1121 or the West Tennessee Drug Task Force at 731-784-0555. All calls can remain anonymous.
