Just heard on the grapevine that a body has been recovered from the river Mersey at New Brighton.
Thats all I know at the moment.
Some heartbreaking News for one family to hear today.
Will say a little prayer for them all.

Loc: 3/4 of the way there....
as mentioned if he was crying for help it sounds like a tragic accident or a "cry for help" that ended tragically, either way i feel for his family frown

He was in his 50's I believe, not a school child.

That's 2 today, plus one attempted last week - sad.

At this time nobody is sure how he came to be in the water.
Police where there within a minute of the incident being called in.
He had been shouting for help but was to far out due to the tide going out for anyone on the prom to actually do anything other than point at him until the RNLI arrived.
By that time unfortunaly it was to late as he had been in the water approx 25/30 minutes.
I did see a number of people taking pictures. Lets hope nothing insensitive appears on the net!

That is so sad, I tell you what though that River Mersey is becoming a killer. I'm only young so maybe I have never noticed before but it just seems like every month there is another body found.

My thoughts are with his family x
