Body Found Floating In Harbor
"4:48am: Our Marine Unit responded to 2300 Boston St (pier side) for a woman in the water. Victim transported to hospital by medics."Police reported on twitter a woman was found floating in the water near Canton this morning. The tweet read like a water rescue. In reality, the woman was dead, and Baltimore Police Marine Unit performed a body recovery.

Baltimore City Fire Department paramedics transported the woman's body to Johns Hopkins University Hospital, where it will be claimed by the Office Of The Chief Medical Examiner.
Other news outlets reported the incident as a rescue. Apparently the concept of checking multiple sources and verifying information is a lost art in Baltimore media.
