Firefighters search the artificial lake outside SoFi Stadium after receiving reports of a body found in the water on Wednesday morning.
According to the Los Angeles County Fire Department, responders were called to the stadium in Inglewood just after 6 a.m. and began a water rescue in Lake Park. Details of what prompted the call were not immediately available.
KTTV Channel 11 reports that authorities have surveillance footage of a person jumping into the lake and not coming out. Aerial photos of the lake Wednesday morning showed emergency teams deployed around the body of water preparing a dive team to search the area.
The Inglewood Police Department did not immediately respond to requests for comment.
Lake Park is south of the stadium, and the 5.5-acre lake holds about 11 million gallons of water, according to the stadium developers.
Both the Rams and Chargers call SoFi Stadium home.
This is breaking news and will be updated as more information becomes available.
