UPDATE: Police Investigate Body in River

Posted: Updated:

News 3 has learned that Occupational Safety and Health Administration investigators have taken the lead in the death of a 20-year-old man whose body was recovered from the Savannah River Wednesday morning.

Savannah-Chatham Metropolitan Police initiated the investigation after Brian Charles Parker of Pooler was found floating between a boat and the pier at Crescent Towing on Fig Drive about 9:30 a.m. He had been working around a tug boat and dock when he disappeared from view.

Members of the SCMPD Marine Patrol, Savannah Fire Department and South Side Fire Department pulled the body from the water.

 An autopsy was scheduled today to determine the cause of death.

From our exclusive network of SavannahCams, we could see rescue crews staging on River Street, then boarding a rescue boat heading to the scene.
