The Elk Grove Fire Department retrieved a body Wednesday afternoon that was floating in the Sacramento River near Cliff Marina, according to the Sacramento County Sheriff’s Department.
Katie Siu, a Sacramento resident, said the fire department used the motorboat she and friends were in to pull the body from the water around 12:30 p.m.
The body was that of a male, probably in his 50s, Siu said. Someone else on the water spotted the body and a person on a megaphone called Siu’s boat over to help recover it, she said.
Sheriff’s Department spokesperson Lisa Bowman said the body will be given to the Sacramento County coroner.
