Officials believe the body they found in the Grand River is the man who reportedly fell from a pedestrian bridge Sunday morning.
Police say they were called to the bridge near Concession and Water Streets around 2:30 a.m.
Cambridge Fire Department located a deceased 21-year-old man around noon in the water.
Police say there is no indication of foul play and believe the death is accidental or the cause of misadventure.
His identity will not be released until an autopsy is completed.
This is the second time in three weeks police have found a body in the river.
A 32-year-old man was pulled out of the Grand in the area of Grand Avenue South and St. Andrews Street. He was pronounced dead on the scene.
"Everybody just has to be safe around these waters," said nearby resident Steve Husson. "You can fall in and you never know what's going to happen. This gentlemen was the worst that could happen."
Police continue to investigate the incident and are expected to provide an update on Monday.
