Lifeguards recovered the body and brought it to shore. Death was confirmed due to "obvious decomposition," officials with the Medical Examiner's Office said.

The body appeared to have been in the water for less than 72 hours before it was found, and there were no apparent signs of obvious trauma, Oceanside police Lt. Valencia Saadat said.

Saadat said that due to the condition of the body, identification was not immediately possible.
