Police in a Philadelphia suburb say they have pulled a body out of the Delaware River.

Officers went to the scene at Delaware County's Tinicum Township about 4 p.m. Sunday, after getting a call from people who were in the Gov. Prince Park and saw the body floating during low tide.

Police Chief Stephen Edmiston tells The Philadelphia Inquirer after a preliminary investigation, the county medical examiner's office saw no sign of foul play.

The body was that of a white man estimated to be in his 30s or 40s. He remains unidentified.
