Body or bodies dropped from railroad trestle

Posted: Updated:

SHREVEPORT, La., (KNOE 8 News) - Authorities in Shreveport have resumed their search for what could be two bodies that fell from the train trestle across the Red River near the downtown area.

Fire Chief Louis Johnson says the engineer of a Kansas City Southern train said he did see someone on the tracks around 9:30 p.m. Wednesday.

When railroad officials moved the train from the possible spot of collision, there was no evidence of any human injury.

A witness reported seeing two splashes in the river, leading officials to believe there may be two victims.

The depth of the water in that area is about 30 feet.
