Man's body washes ashore in Ocean Beach

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CNS) - A man's body was found wedged in thick mud at the edge of the San Diego River in the Ocean Beach area Thursday.

The discovery near a bicycle trail alongside the north end of Sunset Cliffs Boulevard was reported shortly after 9 a.m., according to San Diego police.

Lifeguards retrieved the body -- possibly that of a transient -- and turned it over to personnel from the county Medical Examiner's Office, which will work to determine the man's identity and cause of death.

No suspicious circumstances were reported, SDPD Detective Gary Hassen said.
