I saw being dragged from the Schuylkill River yesterday.
Time (a bit after 6:30 PM) and place (Walnut Street bridge) check out. The poor guy was only a short way downstream of the bridge. I didn’t see his face; the police kept him face down, perhaps on purpose, and covered him with a blue tarp as soon as he was safely stowed on the fantail, or whatever they call that “back porch” feature at the stern of a motorboat. For that reason and because the body seemed a bit stiff (but I haven’t seen many dead bodies, so what do I know?) I did wonder if I might have stumbled on some police training excercise, so I checked the news this morning. Not an exercise.
So if you’re in the Philadelphia area and know a white guy, probably young, reasonably athletic build, who was wearing dark shorts, dark short-sleeved shirt and athletic shoes (no socks) yesterday and isn’t around today, and he might have been near the river (especially the river park–that seems likelier to me; falling from any of the bridges would probably leave you too injured to call for help), you might want to contact the police.
