Body found in Schuylkill River



A woman's body was found Monday afternoon in the Schuylkill River Monday near where a car driven by a woman plunged into the water Thursday, authorities said.

At 3:44 p.m., a medic unit responded to a report of a person in the river near Hunting Park Avenue and Kelly Drive, south of where the woman driving the car disappeared. The medic unit confirmed that a dead person was in the river.

Officer Tanya Little said that the police Marine Unit will recover the body. The Medical Examiner's Office will conduct an autopsy to determine the cause of death and identify the person. Little said the woman appeared to be in her 30s or 40s.

On Thursday afternoon, a 2008 Mercury Grand Marquis moving south on Ferry Road crossed Kelly Drive at a high rate of speed slammed through the wall and crashed into the river.
A few seconds later, witnesses saw a woman in the river, screaming for help as the current carried her downriver before she disappeared, police said. The car was pulled from the river that night. The woman has been missing since the accident.

No need to take the D Train uptown to the Bronx’s Bainbridge Avenue to get it, Young Vinchi – with his clever rhymes, sly imagination and hype J Staffz beats - brings it to you . “It’s Me” – hosted by DJ Lyle of BET’s 106 and Park - appeals to all your senses of having fun, looking good, feeling good, being young at the club: smokin’, drinkin’ and thinkin’, chasing “Shaquana and Shaquita”, and getting paid. The music - layered sonic arrangements of speaker-rattling percussion bombs, horns and keyboards- is a human bobble-head soundtrack. No
