Body washes up on MA shore in front of beachgoers

The body found on a Salisbury beach Monday morning was identified as a missing boater, according to the medical examiner's officer.

Salisbury Police received a 911 call at 11:05 a.m. reporting that a body had been pulled onto the shore.

His body was spotted by people at the beach yesterday morning.

Authorities said Chhoun and Pen Sok, also of Lowell, set out in their boat on the afternoon of June 6.

The Coast Guard was attempting to rescue Chhoun when a wave slammed into their rescue boat. A Coast Guard boat rescue team spotted Chounn facedown and unconscious in the water, but as they attempted to reach him, the boat was hit by a large wave and the team lost sight of Chounn.


Forget said processing evidence from the scene will prove to be hard based on what he called changing environmental conditions. But after the body was covered with a beach blanket and the first emergency responders arrived, sunbathers looked and acted as if nothing had happened.

Still, Mike Prespa, a tree trimmer from Salisbury, said he was shocked to see the body being deposited on the sand. She said the family has been notified.
