SCRANTON, Pa. -- Dive teams are expected back at Nay Aug Park in Scranton for a search Friday morning.

Newswatch 16 caught a rescue team going into a wooded area just off the parking lot late Thursday night.

Officials with the Scranton fire department say four people fell into the water just above the falls around 9 p.m.

A man and one woman were pulled from the water and taken to the hospital.

Another man and his dog were also rescued. He is assisting authorities with the investigation.

Officials say one woman is still missing.

Scranton's Assistant Fire Chief Jeff White says, because of all the rain, conditions are very treacherous in the gorge area making it easy for someone to slip.

"The water is raging. It's been raining. The water is up," explained White. "Everything about it is a place not to be right now. Other than behind those rails just looking at the beauty. Nobody should go off the trail."

The Scranton fire department is handling this investigation.

The assistant chief says his crews will search through the night with dive teams hitting the water Friday morning.
