Vehicle and Body Recovered From Minnesota River

Two days after trying to recover a submerged car in the Minnesota River, the vehicle and a body have been recovered, according to Hennepin County authorities. Sheriff Dawanna Witt says the vehicle was pulled from the river in Bloomington on Tuesday after being submerged about 24 feet underwater. The original report was received on Sunday, June 16, before 8 p.m., as bystanders told authorities that they saw the vehicle entering the water at the Lyndale Ave. boat ramp before becoming fully submerged. Water Patrol located the vehicle with sonar, but due to the extreme current, divers could not enter the water. Attempts to recover the vehicle from the river were also initially unsuccessful. Dangerous water conditions continued from through Monday.   JF Brennan Company, a commercial salvage diving company, was contacted to assist with the vehicle recovery, and at about 10:45 a.m. Tuesday they were able to hook the vehicle and pull it out of the water.  It was confirmed that one person was inside the vehicle, and the Hennepin County Medical Examiner's Office will identify the victim and determine the cause of death. The case is still under investigation by the Hennepin County Sheriff's Office. During the recovery efforts, a second vehicle was located near the first. That vehicle was recovered around 2:45 p.m. Tuesday, though authorities say that vehicle had been in the river for an unknown period of time and do not believe there is any connection to the first vehicle.
