Authorities have recovered two bodies from a car that plunged into the Mississippi River in Winona.
    
The Winona Daily News reports the sheriff's office received a call just before 7:30 a.m. Sunday about tracks and the possibility that a car had gone into the river. Responders found a broken guard rail on Riverview Drive as well as a license plate, purse and other debris on shore.
    
Winona County Sheriff Dave Brand says an underwater camera spotted the car, and authorities pulled it out of the water around noon. Two bodies were found inside, one male and one female.
    
The woman was identified as 36-year-old Christina Lee Hauser, of Winona. The name of the 30-year-old man was not immediately released.
