THE body of a man was found in the Msunduzi River near Chief Albert Luthuli Street on Tuesday morning.

SAPS Search and Rescue were already on the scene from an earlier incident which saw a light motor vehicle crash into the river, killing one person and leaving five others injured.

ER24 personnel were called to the scene after the SAPS Search and Rescue Canine unit alerted authorities to a body found approximately ten metres away from the first incident.

On assessment, ER24 paramedics found that the man had been dead for some time.
