Man's body pulled from water near downtown St. Petersburg marina

ST. PETERSBURG — Passersby pulled the body of a man from the water near Municipal Marina on Monday afternoon, police said.

The man, who police have not named, was found under the approach to the Pier, near 601 Second Ave. S. Police have tentatively identified him as a 55-year-old homeless man, but did not release his name because his family had not been notified.

A witness reported seeing the man swimming in the water off of Spa Beach about 10:30 a.m. and noticed about 20 minutes later that he was gone.

Foul play is not suspected, police said, but an autopsy is planned. His body showed no obvious signs of trauma.
