PORTLAND – A man’s body was recovered from the Willamette River Wednesday morning, after a dragon boat team spotted him floating along the waterfront.

The dragon boat team called 911 around 9:30 a.m. to report the body.

River Patrol deputies responded and recovered the body downstream from the light rail bridge project.

The body was turned over to the medical examiner, to determine the cause of death.

Detectives said no further information would be released until they could notify next of kin.
