Painter's body recovered after Ambassador Bridge fall
The body of a painter who fell off the Ambassador Bridge in January has been recovered.
In a telephone interview on Sunday afternoon, U.S. Coast Guard spokesman George Degener told CBC News that a body was spotted in the Detroit River on Friday afternoon.
The body was recovered and subsequently identified as Kent Morton, a 28-year-old man who fell off the bridge on Jan. 11.
Morton was working for a subcontractor of Seaway Painting, a Michigan company hired by the Ambassador Bridge to paint the span.
