Woman's body pulled from N.B.'s Petitcodiac River
Dieppe's deputy fire chief says rising tide presented challenge during recovery
A woman's body was pulled from the Petitcodiac River near the causeway bridge in Riverview, N.B., Sunday.
The fire department received a call around 10:15 Sunday morning.
Conrad Landry, deputy chief of the Dieppe Fire Department, said it was quickly established that the victim was in no need of immediate rescue.
Moncton, Riverview and Dieppe fire departments, as well an ambulance and the RCMP responded.
The tidal bore brings in the tide with one large wave.
Landry said the departments had to contend with the rising tide during the procedure, but the operation went smoothly.
The remains were removed from the water before noon.
Police know the identity of the woman but are not releasing her name at this time.
An autopsy is expected on Monday to determine her cause of death.
