A father and his 4-year-old son drown in a fishing accident near the Tennessee River

The bodies of a father and son were found in the Tennessee River in what authorities believe may have been the result of a fishing accident that occurred overnight.

Michael Ryan Tucker, 31, and Michael Allen Tucker, 4, were pulled from the river on Wednesday, the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation told USA TODAY.

“Today is a sad day in Perry County,” Perry County Sheriff Nick Weems said during a news conference on the day of the discovery.

When Perry County sheriff’s deputies arrived at the scene that morning, they found an unattended car parked near where the child’s body was found in the water, Weems said.
