At around 3:30 Saturday morning members from the Knoxville Police Department, Knoxville Fire Department, Knox County Sheriff's Department, and Knoxville Volunteer Rescue Squad responded to a report of a drown white male in the river behind 5100 S. National Drive.
At 5:30, divers pulled the body of a 30 year old white male out of the river. He was pronounced dead on the scene. The man's name has not yet been released.
