Body recovered from Delaware River


A man’s body was recovered Saturday morning from the Delaware River near the Tacony–Palmyra Bridge, police said.

The body was found in the river shortly before 10:30 a.m., a spokeswoman for the Philadelphia Police Department said. Police were not able to identify the man, whom they described as a black man approximately 30 to 40 years old.

The police marine unit was able to bring the body out of the river, and the man was pronounced dead at the scene just before 11 a.m.
