Man’s body found inside boat in waters off North Miami Beach

A man's body was found inside a small boat floating in the Intracoastal Waterway in North Miami Beach Monday afternoon, according to police.

North Miami Beach police spokesman Richard Rand said the boat was found at about 4:30 p.m. near Northeast 172nd Street and Biscayne Boulevard.

Police began a death investigation on the unidentified man. Choppy waters made it difficult to get the boat to shore, Rand said.

It was not clear Monday when the man died and what caused his death, Rand said.
