A body was pulled from the St. Lawrence River on Saturday afternoon, Brockville police say.

​St. Lawrence Park and its beach were closed for several hours yesterday afternoon after a body was near the west dock,  Det. Sgt. Tom Fournier said in a statement.  

Fire officials helped police pull the body from the water, Fournier said.

The body has been taken to Ottawa, said Fournier, where a post-mortem examination is scheduled for Tuesday to determine the identity and cause of death.

No other information has been released about the body, including whether foul play is suspected.
