A man and a woman waded into the pond, called Mungers Lake, at Reichmuth Park looking to see what birds were out Wednesday morning. Instead, they found a man’s body lying in the water about 100 feet from the shore.

The Sacramento Fire Department responded to the couple’s call about 9 a.m. and confirmed the victim deceased shortly thereafter.

He was partially clothed at the south end of the park, said Chris Harvey, department spokesman, and had yet to be retrieved or identified by the Sacramento County Coroner’s Office as of 9:45 a.m.
