Deceased Human Body Found Floating Off The Coast In Sea Bright, New Jersey
It has been a very sad few days at the Jersey Shore. My thoughts are with Keith Pinto and his family. Keith was a 19-year-old Toms River native and lifeguard who was fatally struck by lightning on the beach in Berkeley Township. He was a special kid who was loved by many. My heart is with Keith's family and friends. Below is a picture of Keith, may he rest in peace!
More tragic news, this time in Monmouth County. A deceased human body was found less than a mile offshore in Sea Bright. The New Jersey State Police reported this breaking news on Sunday morning. The identification of the person is unknown and has not been released to the public. We won't know until the completion of the post-mortem examination.
The body was found floating face down by a passerby on a boat off the Sea Bright coast. The Sea Bright Fire and Rescue, members of the New Jersey State Police Marine Services Bureau, and the U.S. Coast Guard responded to the scene and transported the body to shore. The body is currently being examined at the Middlesex County Medicals office.
