NEWPORT BEACH – Authorities said they recovered a man’s body from the surf around 2:30 p.m. Sunday.
Lifeguards pulled the body of a fully clothed deceased “elderly” man from the water near the 40th Street jetty, lifeguard and police officials said.
The Orange County coroner’s office has not identified the body. It plans to conduct an autopsy later in the week.
Harbor Patrol officials said they were unaware of any missing-person reports from neighboring coastal cities.
