some of the radio messages referred to the body as 'the item has been retrieved successfully from the water'. I've known women to be referred to as 'an item', but they were usually alive and kicking. one can only wish the person is identified and the family notified before it gets leaked by some social twit. that water is cold enough to claim life within a few minutes of immersion, very dangerous to take a dip this time of year. http://westpacmarine.com/samples/hypothermia_chart.asp
