Emergency crews were on scene this morning near the intersection of South Main Street and Beltline Road on reports of a body discovered in the Rock River.

The body was found around 10 a.m. by a local fisherman. Officials at the scene said the body is too badly decomposed to determine if it is male or female.

A rescue boat tipped over during the recovery operation, prompting a water rescue operation.
