A man's body and the partial skeletal remains of another person were recovered Friday from the Schuylkill, bringing to four the number of bodies retrieved from the river in the last two weeks, police said.
"It's not uncommon in the springtime. As the weather warms, the water warms, so we're starting to see bodies float up," said Lt. John Walker of Southwest Detectives. "Two in a day is unusual. Four in two weeks is a high number for us."
The man's body was found shortly before noon, when it was spotted floating near the Market Street Bridge. It was recovered just south of the Walnut Street Bridge.
