BOSTON (WHDH) - The Boston Police Department confirmed that they are conducting a death investigation after a body was found Tuesday at Fort Point Channel.
Police responded around 7:30 a.m. to the Binford Street area for a report about a body in the water.
Crews spent about four hours working to recover the body.
Boston Fire’s Deputy Chief Mike Ruggere says it was challenge to remove the body.
“It was stuck somehow in the water,” Ruggere said. “A dive team came and we had to put a ladder over the edge, about a 15-foot drop.”
Police have not provided a description of the victim. It’s not clear if foul play is suspected.
Fort Point Channel is a maritime channel separating South Boston from the downtown area, feeding into Boston Harbor.
