The Coast Guard searched the water for hours in two vessels and a helicopter before finding the body, Coast Guard spokesman Jonathan Klingenberg told CNN. Local search-and-rescue teams also aided in the search.
The body was found floating near a marina.
“The fire department got there first and recovered the body,” Klingenberg told NBC News. “It’s absolutely a tragedy. Most of us all have families.”
Miranda told CNN the chances someone would survive the more than 100-foot fall to the water were “minimal.” And if someone lived through it, the frigid water could kill him within about 20 minutes.
A woman in Portland named Amanda Stott-Smith tossed her 4-year-old son and 7-year-old daughter from a bridge in 2009. Though her daughter survived, her son died. Stott-Smith was sentenced to 35 years in prison, Fox News reported.
