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.
