Man's Body Found in Los Angeles River

October 28, 2000

ATWATER — Police recovered a man's body from the Los Angeles River downstream from Griffith Park on Friday night.

Someone reported a body about 7 p.m. Shortly afterward, authorities found it in water about one foot deep near the Glendale Boulevard bridge, said Los Angeles Police Officer Jason Lee, a department spokesman.

Coroner's investigators and police detectives were summoned. Lee said preliminary investigations indicated no foul play.

The victim may have been a transient who lived in the area, Lee said.

On Wednesday, two Long Beach boys, 8 and 9, drowned in the lower reaches of the river. They apparently had been playing on a dam near the Anaheim Street bridge when one of them slipped into the water and the other fell in trying to get him out.
