MILLVILLE, W.Va. - Divers with the Independent Fire Co. helped recover two cars Sunday from a pool of water at an old quarry near Millville, W.Va., said West Virginia State Police.
Witnesses saw a 1995 Pontiac Grand Am go into the quarry early Sunday, said Trooper G.S. Petsko.
They later reported it to police who called for the scuba team with the Independent Fire Co., Petsko said.
The search started about 8:30 a.m. Sunday. At first, divers did not know if they would recover bodies from the car or what they might find, said Fire Chief Ed Smith.
Divers have been used in searches for possible crime-scene evidence recovery in the past, but this was the first time where the unit was called upon to look for possible victims, Smith said.
