Body of a Man Found
Authorities are investigating what happened to the man who was found dead floating near Long Beach Harbor.
Long Beach authorities were looking for a missing kayaker after they got a call from a man who hurt his foot. The man had injured himself jumping in the water to rescue a dog that appeared to be in distress. When Long Beach firefighters arrived on the scene, they discovered an upside-down kayak and began to search for its passenger.
It was just after 5 p.m. when the body of a middle-aged Hispanic man was discovered in the water right by Jim Simpson Pier.
Authorities tell News 25 the body was found without a life jacket. They believe the dog belonged to the kayaker.
