TAMPA, Fla. (WFLA) — A false alarm caused traffic delays on the Gandy Bridge as first responders tried to rescue a victim that did not exist, according to officials.

Tampa police and Tampa Fire Rescue both responded to a water rescue call off the Gandy Bridge Monday evening. However, they never found a victim.

Tampa Fire Rescue said it learned from the U.S. Coast Guard that it was a false alarm.

The eastbound lanes were partially shut down to one lane as first responders attempt their rescue. Those lanes are now reopened.
