FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE) – The Fort Wayne Fire Department’s Dive Team was dispatched to the bridge on Sherman Boulevard over the Saint Mary’s River for a possible water rescue around 6 p.m. Friday after someone had called to report they had seen a car in the water.

A representative from the Fort Wayne Fire Department told NewsChannel 15, the person who called in to report the incident had likely seen a pontoon boat that had been traveling in the water and had mistaken it for a car that was sinking.
