ATLANTIC CITY — First responders removed a body from the water Tuesday afternoon in the South Inlet, police said.

After 4 p.m., emergency personnel wheeled a body bag on a gurney from the Boardwalk where they were set up at Euclid Avenue.

An officer at the scene said they had been there since about 1 p.m. as a firefighter poured bleach on the boards to sanitize the scene.

No additional information was available Tuesday, pending a report from the medical examiner, police said.
