LOUISVILLE, Ky. — Louisville police said Friday a body has been recovered from LG&E's Mill Creek station.
Louisville Fire and EMS were assisting LG&E's emergency response team in a recovery effort after a contracted dive crew lost audio contact with one of their divers Thursday.
The Jefferson County Coroner's Office identified the missing diver as 19-year-old Jaxxyn Lee Wood of Owensboro, saying Wood's death was consistent with that of drowning.
LG&E spokesperson Chris Whelan said the crew was doing a routine inspection at The Mill Creek Generation Station on Dixie Highway when they lost contact with Wood. Whelan said it is unclear at this time what happened.
Due to the ongoing investigation, police said they are unable to provide any other details.
