Passaic police notified surrounding agents of the body first seen floating south of the Monroe Street Bridge around 4 p.m., Garfield Police Chief Raymond Kovach said.

Garfield and Passaic police were among the initial responders.

Garfield Fire Department's Marine 3 Unit launched from Wallington for the recovery, Kovach said.
