BYRON CENTER, Mich. -- A person's body was found Tuesday after a car was pulled from a pond in Byron Center.

A dive team was called to a pond in the 2000 block of 84th Street SW near Byron Center Manor at about 10:45 a.m., according to the Kent County Sheriff's Department. A car was pulled from the water just before 11 a.m.

Employees at the Cook Funeral Home which partially owns the pond with the manor tell FOX 17 that they were putting a star on their pine tree for the holidays when they saw the roof of the vehicle from their lift.
