Firefighters responded at 6:50 a.m. to a report of two people struggling in the water at 1115 W. Lunt Ave., police News Affairs Officer Laura Kubiak said.

When police Marine Patrol officers arrived one person had been pulled out of the water by firefighters, Kubiak said. Two divers searched for the second person, who firefighters pulled from the water at 7:25 a.m., Kubiak said.
