A man’s body was recovered Wednesday afternoon from the Sacramento River near Miller Park.
Sacramento Police Department officers and Sacramento Fire Department personnel responded to reports of a body near the 2700 block of Ramp Way at 5:51 p.m. Wednesday.
The body was removed and transferred to the Sacramento County Coroner’s Office. It has not yet been positively identified and foul play is not a factor in the incident, according to the Coroner’s Office.
Police and fire officials could not determine whether the body belonged to a 24-year-old man who presumably drowned Sunday about 2 1/2 miles north at the confluence of the Sacramento and American rivers.
It was the third body pulled from area waterways in two days. The body of a drowned Sacramento man was pulled Tuesday morning from Lake Natoma and another body was recovered that same day from the American River at Sutter’s Landing.
