A body was discovered Friday floating in the water near Banning’s Landing Community Center in Wilmington.

Crews responded to the community center at 100 E. Water St. about 3:30 p.m., after a 911 caller reported seeing the body about 100 yards offshore, said Brian Humphrey with the Los Angeles Fire Department.

LAFD personnel helped port police recover the remains, Humphrey said.

No details were immediately available on the identity of the person or the cause of death.
