WISCONSIN DELLS — A second body has been pulled from Mirror Lake, a sheriff's official said.

According to our partners at WISC-TV, Sauk County Sheriff's Capt. Mike Stoddard said a woman's body was found at about 12:45 p.m. near the debris field where the semi-truck cab plunged into Mirror Lake.

On Sunday morning, authorities discovered a damaged guard rail on interstate 90-94 and a submerged semi-truck in the lake below.

One person was found dead in the cab, once the truck was pulled from the lake. The second body was discovered Monday afternoon.

Officials said the embankment into the river is about 107 feet, or about 10 stories.
