A man’s body was recovered at Riviera Beach after washing ashore on Thursday morning, March 9, according to authorities.
Deputies responded to the report of the deceased body washing ashore at 11:22 a.m., Sgt. Mike Woodruff, a spokesperson for the Orange County Sheriff’s Department, said.
Beachgoers walking along the shoreline noticed what looked to be a body washing onto the beach and called 911, Capt. Bryan Etnyre, a spokesperson for the California State Parks, said.
Following the recovery of the body, the beach was closed for a couple of hours but has since been reopened, according to Etnyre.
The coroner has obtained the body of the individual, who was described as an approximately 60-year-old male, and is conducting a death investigation, according to Etnyre.
OCSD and California State Parks had no other information they could provide as of Thursday afternoon.
This is a developing story.
