A father and son apparently drowned Saturday in a rock quarry near Lake Worth, according to the Fort Worth Fire Department.

Fort Worth dive teams recovered the bodies of two men Sunday, a fire department spokesman confirmed. The search began Saturday and was suspended overnight due to cold water, "zero visibility and depth of 50+ feet."

The search was launched at the quarry near the 2200 block of Silver Creek Road, along the southwest side of Lake Worth. Live Oak Creek also runs near the address.

The men, a father and son, were identified Sunday by the Tarrant County Medical Examiner. The son's name was Martin Gutierrez, 22, while the father was 51-year-old Martin Gutierrez Talamantes.

The Fort Worth Fire Department tweeted that one man fell in and the second attempted to rescue him.

The location is on the property of Silver Creek Material Company, according to the Fort Worth Fire Department.

Fort Worth police said they did not expect foul play, but directed all other inquires to the Fort Worth Fire Department.
