BOSTON, MA – On Monday morning Boston police pulled a human body from the Charlestown Navy Yard development.
Officers had been dispatched to a section of the neighborhood located near First Avenue and Fifth Street. Somebody had reported seeing a body.
Daniel Ferreira, a kiosk worker for Boston Harbor Cruises, has begun his daily work around 6:30 a.m. This was in the area where police officers were responding to the call.
“At first I thought it was a normal day,” he said. “Then I saw a lot of police, ambulances, and fire trucks show up.
Ferreira went on to say that first responders centered their investigation in the waters by the USS Constitution Museum in the Navy Yard. There were many officials congregated in this area.
Around 7:30 a.m., most of the first responders and their trucks and any other police vehicles had vanished from the location. However, there was still a small clutch of police officers surveying the area. By now the police had cordoned off the scene of the accident or crime.
Paula, a clerk at a nearby 7-Eleven said she spotted the body of what she thought was a woman floating in the water around 7:30 in the morning. To her eyes, the person was dressed in a white shirt, black pants and no shoes.
Richard White, 68, who arrives here every morning to sip coffee and feed bread to the birds said, “If someone fell in the wee hours of the morning, there wouldn’t be anyone around.”
