SAVANNAH, GA (June 1, 2011): Police are investigating the death of a man whose body was found floating in the Savannah River near the Lincoln Street ramp Wednesday afternoon.


Pleasure boaters noticed the body in the middle of the river about 4 p.m. and pulled it to a city dock before calling police.

A section of the Savannah Riverwalk was closed off for several hours until Savannah Fire could remove the body.
