ORIGINAL STORY: A body found stuck on a bridge pillar in the Passaic River was recovered Sunday afternoon.

The body was stuck on a pillar of the Broadway bridge in Elmwood Park around 12:15 p.m., reports say. 

Dive teams from Lyndhurst and Wyckoff, along with boat teams from the Elmwood Park Fire Department, transferred the victim's body from where it was stuck on a pillar of the Broadway Bridge to a boat.

The body was then transported to the Elmwood Park boat launch on River Drive, for transfer to land.
