Suffolk County Police pulled a man’s body from the waters at Kings Park Bluff on Saturday.

The county police department responded to an incident during which a car plunged into the Kings Park Bluff waters around 10:40 p.m. on Friday night, authorities said. Marine Bureau divers investigated the scene soon after.

But the following morning, around 7:35 a.m., police received a 911 call reporting a body on a sandbar in the river.

Marine Bureau divers once again responded and recovered the body of an adult male. Police described the man’s location as “a distance away” from where the vehicle went into the water.

It was unclear if police knew the man’s identity, and it was not immediately known that it was his vehicle in the water.

The vehicle was removed from the water on Monday and the incident was classified as noncriminal, police said.

The county’s Homicide Squad detectives were still investigating the incident.
