The body of a man was pulled Friday from the swollen waters of Wascana Creek in Regina.

The cause of death is not yet known, but police say foul play is not suspected. The man's identity has not been released.

Police received a call Friday afternoon that a body was in the water near the Regina Dog Park on the west side of the city just off 13th Avenue.

About 15 minutes later, firefighters and an underwater recovery team located the body near a bridge.

Much of the dog park has been flooded by the Wascana Creek and the current in the area where the body was found was strong.
