Alive, around 7 a.m., according to Northeast Fire Alert.
We usually speak of bodies being recovered, but living people being rescued. I'm glad the story has a happy ending, but the headline doesn't sound like it fits.
Technically, a body was recovered.
"rescue" - living person
"recovery" - dead person's remains
Those are the terms used in search and rescue.
I didn't say it was a dead body. Living people have bodies too, bub.
I'm just explaining the terminology that's used by the people who do search and rescue. Bub.
"Live Body Recovered"?
Would love to hear the story of how they got into the water.
Glad they were rescued. It was really cold out there today.
Agree, correct terminology in this case is, "Person rescued". (Or "girl", "boy, "man", "woman", "child", "yoot", etc).
In this situation the words "body", and "recovered" aren't quite right.
