Seattle police pulled a body from the water Sunday morning after receiving calls from witnesses who saw it floating in the south end of Lake Union.

Harbor units responded within 10 minutes and recovered the body, according to Officer Patrick Michaud. They turned the body over to the medical examiner.

The department hasn’t disclosed the gender of the victim, and it hasn’t yet determined how the body got there.
