One juvenile is safe and another is still unaccounted for after the vehicle they were in was found submerged Monday afternoon in Brays Bayou, according to Houston Fire Department.

Rescue efforts occurred in the 100 block of Broadway near Hockley Street in east Houston, according to first responders.

Authorities said the vehicle lost control and went off the bridge and into the bayou.

Firefighters said one juvenile, believed to be a female, self-extricated herself from the vehicle. Rescue crews set out on a boat in search of additional victims.

Helicopters were over the rescue scene and saw the female victim was given a neck brace.

A couple of civilians at the scene were spotted reacting emotionally, but it is not immediately known who those people were.
