Tukwila and Renton RFA firefighters and specialized divers were dispatched on Thursday night just after 1800 hours PT to a car into the water.
The incident occurred in the area of 12400 Blk x 42nd Ave S in Tukwila, Washington.
Seattle Fire attempted to respond but due to the water level and a low bridge, they were unable to continue with their response so they returned to their quarters.
Divers continued throughout the night, even well into the darkness searching.
One yellow patient was treated at the scene and transported to the hospital.
Police divers continue to search for the missing person, a second occupant of the vehicle that veered into the Duwamish River. They are using a submersible camera to help search for the reported missing victim.
