A vehicle was recovered from the river. Unknown if it was occupied or how it got in the water.
RS fan Brent Miller said: “A lady was following her GPS and drove into the river (No, I’m not joking). She made it out.”
We can confirm several emergency personnel are on scene. Also a large tow truck.
Around 9 am this morning we were hearing several emergency personnel were responding for their emergency personnel dive teams. Details are very minimal right now, but the scene is at the Harlem Bridge in Machesney Park. It is not yet known what is going on at the time of writing this. Only NPFD has a call at the Harlem Bridge and needs assistance from other emergency dive teams in the area. We will bring updates as they become available
