HAMPTON, N.H. (AP) — Police are awaiting autopsy results in the death of two men whose bodies were pulled from the Hampton River within about an hour of each other.

Authorities say the first body was reported just before 11 a.m. Friday. After recovering the body using a small boat, police spotted a second man’s body in the water around noon.

Autopsies are scheduled for Saturday. Hampton Police Chief Jamie Sullivan told the Portsmouth Herald the deaths are not considered suspicious at this time.

Police won’t release the identities of the two men until their families are notified.
