HUNTSVILLE, Ala. - The Morgan County Rescue Squad says it is now in charge of a recovery operation on the Tennessee River.

Teams are still looking for one other person.

As part of a mutual aid agreement, Huntsville called in rescuers from Morgan and Limestone Counties as well as Lacey's Spring water rescue to help in the search.

A call came in to 911 around 4:45 a.m. We understand that initial report was for someone who fell in the water and didn't resurface.
