Philly police pull 2nd body from Delaware River

PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Police have retrieved a second body from the Delaware River in their recovery efforts after a tour boat was struck by a barge and capsized at Philadelphia.

Authorities did not immediately confirm the body was that of 20-year-old Hungarian Szabolcs Prem, who has been missing since Wednesday. Police earlier pulled the body of 16-year-old Dora Schwendtner from the water.

The second body surfaced from beneath a salvage barge Friday after crews raised the amphibious "duck boat" from the river bottom and the barge began hauling it away. A police boat pulled the body on board about a block downriver from where it surfaced.

Thirty-five other people were rescued after the barge ran over the duck boat, sinking it.
