A body was retrieved from the Riviere-des-Prairies Sunday afternoon, according to Montreal police.

Just before 3 p.m., passerby dialled 911 to notify police that a body was floating in the water near the intersections of Gouin and Saint-Jean-Baptiste Blvds. 

Firefighters and Urgences Sante worked together to pull the body from the water.

According to a spokesperson for the Montreal Police, the victim is a dark-skinned male, possibly in his 20's.

Montreal police will be on-site to investigate the circumstances of the incident, however, they said they do not believe it's a criminal event. 

Police confirmed that the body in question is not that of missing 10-year-old Ariel Kouakou, who was last seen in Parc des Batteliers on the banks of the Riviere-des-Pairies on March 12.
