    CA - Huntington Beach, body on Santa Ana sandbar, Jan'11 - Jesus Perez

    HUNTINGTON BEACH – A body was discovered in the middle of the Santa Ana River bed Thursday morning, authorities said.

    Huntington Beach police got a 911 call about 9:30 a.m. after a passer-by noticed a body on a sand bar in the riverbed near Adams Avenue and Brookhurst Street, Huntington Beach Fire Capt. Mike McClanahan said.

    The body appeared to have been there for a while, McClanahan said, adding it was unknown if it was a male or female.

    The Orange County Sheriff's Department arrived on the scene around 10 a.m. and is handling the investigation, since it has jurisdiction over the Santa Ana River.

    "As far as we know, it's not suspicious at this point," OCSD Lt. Mike Jansen said.
