A father and son found an interesting discovery at a Central Texas park. 

According to Major T.J. Cruz from the Bell County's Sheriff's Office, a father and son were fishing at Cedar Gap Park in Harker Heights when they thought they saw a body in the water.

The call from the father came in at 11:15 a.m. and deputies arrived at 11:30 a.m. The Harker Heights Fire Department, Game Wardens, Corps of Engineers and Morgan's Point Dive team were also on the scene.

A diver was sent in, and the "body" was actually a ballistics dummy according to Cruz. The dummy was cut loose from a tree and the scene cleared around 3 p.m.
