December 06, 2007

An autopsy was to be performed on an unidentified woman whose body was found floating in the Middle Branch of the Patapsco River near Middle Branch Park yesterday evening, said a spokesman for the city Fire Department.

Shortly before 5 p.m., authorities were told that a body was floating near the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Bridge in the 2400 block of S. Hanover St. in South Baltimore, said Capt. Roman Clark, the spokesman.

Clark said a Fire Department rescue boat pulled the woman, believed to be about 30, from the water and that medics attempted to revive her there and on the way to Harbor Hospital, where she was pronounced dead.

City police were checking missing-person reports.
