Little more than five minutes after McComb loses contact with 911, a woman tells dispatch, “We just saw something going down the river that was flashing a light. It looked like a house or a car.”
Shortly thereafter, a man calling from a Loma Vista home relays a similar report: “A house just went by the river and there’s a person on it with a spotlight.”
“Ok, so you said there’s a house on the river?” the dispatcher asks.
“A house,” the caller repeats, then continues: “It just went by, through the river, and there was someone in it with a bright light — they’ve already hit the bridge, I’m sure.”
