SAN DIEGO — Authorities say San Diego lifeguards pulled a badly decomposed body from the water near Ocean Beach Pier.
Capt. Joe Amador of the San Diego Fire-Rescue Department says lifeguards responded Thursday evening after someone called 911 reporting what appeared to be a floating body.
Amador says it was about 100 yards west of the pier, inside the surf line.
He says it appears the deceased person was in the water for a while.
The San Diego Union-Tribune (http://bit.ly/1eDests ) says police and the coroner's office are investigating.
