Police plucked what witnesses say was a partially dismembered body from the Schuylkill River this morning.

Philadelphia Police responded to the river near the 1300 block of Schuylkill Avenue in the city’s Grays Ferry neighborhood around 8 a.m.

The police marine unit pulled the body from the river and placed it in a parking lot near the Dupont Crescent Trail just below the Grays Ferry Avenue Bridge -- that’s close to the FedEx shipping center.

The unidentified body was covered with a sheet when NBC10 cameras arrived on the scene.

Philadelphia Police didn’t say if there were any signs of trauma to the body.

A witness, who asked not to be identified, told NBC10 that the body appeared to be dismembered.

The medical examiner would determine an exact cause of death.
