Dive team recovers body from Spokane River

SPOKANE VALLEY, Wash. - Dive team body recovery vo

The Spokane dive team pulled a man's body from the Spokane River Tuesday afternoon.

It was discovered by a man walking his dog along the Centennial Trail east of Argonne Road.

The Spokane County Sheriff's Office used a boat and members of the dive team to free the body, which was trapped under a fallen pine tree in the river.

No word as of yet on how long the man had been in the river but sheriff's deputies say at this time it does not look like foul play was a factor in the person's death. The identity of the man found in the water will be released by the medical examiner's officer once the cause of death has been determined and family notified.

The Centennial Trail remains open and crews have cleared the scene where the body was found.
