Emergency crews recover body and car from the Allegheny River in Pittsburgh’s North Shore

PITTSBURGH — Emergency crews recovered a man’s body and a car from the Allegheny River in Pittsburgh’s North Shore, police say.

Allegheny County 911 dispatchers said police, fire and medics were at North Shore Drive and Art Rooney Avenue.

Crews worked near the portion of the river in front of the Fred Rogers statue near Acrisure Stadium for several hours.

A diving team from YouTube was searching the river for two missing people when they found the man’s body.

“We discovered this vehicle underwater relatively early on within our search,” said Doug Bishop from Adventures With a Purpose.

The man the divers found was not one of the missing people they were originally looking for.
