Rescue crews investigating report of drowning in South Knox quarry

KNOXVILLE — The Knoxville Volunteer Emergency Rescue Squad is scouring a South Knoxville quarry Wednesday afternoon searching for a swimmer who did not surface after diving into the water.
The Knoxville Fire Department turned over the rescue effort about 1:50 p.m. after determining the swimmer could not have survived under water for more than an hour.
A man called E-911 about 12:40 p.m. and said he saw a man swimming in the Fort Dickerson quarry, go under the water and not come up.
