LOS ANGELES (AP) — Authorities say a body has been found near a berth at the Port of Los Angeles.

The Los Angeles Fire Department says the body was discovered Wednesday night near Berth 136 in the 900 block of Harry Bridges Boulevard.

Officials say the body may be that of a maritime worker, but the circumstances of how the person died were not immediately clear.

The coroner's office is investigating, along with federal occupational safety workers and port police.
