At 5:40 p.m. Saturday evening, a body was reportedly found in the Berkeley Marina near César Chávez Park, as first reported by Berkeley Patch.

The body was later identified by the Alameda County coroner as Christopher Cheung, a 38-year-old Walnut Creek resident, according to Berkeley Patch.

U.S. Coast Guard Lt. Rachel Thomas told Berkeley Patch that a bystander on the shore spotted an empty outrigger canoe, which had overturned. Thomas stated that a deceased body was found inside the canoe.

Thomas also told Berkeley Patch that the U.S. Coast Guard does not believe anyone else was in the canoe when it overturned.
