Body pulled from Sutro shoreline

A woman’s body was discovered Monday afternoon at the ruins of the Sutro Baths near Sutro Heights Park in the Richmond district.

The U.S. Coast Guard was called at 5:15 p.m. when a person was spotted on top of rocks, but agency officials turned their 47-foot boat away when they couldn’t get close to the woman, who turned out to be dead, according to Petty Officer Lara Mooney.

San Francisco firefighters recovered the body, officials said.

The woman’s identity is expected to be released today by the San Francisco medical examiner.Bay Area NewsLocal
