Police removed a woman’s body from Baltimore’s Inner Harbor on Thursday, the same day that they city committed to spending approximately $125,000 to install safety equipment around the Inner Harbor following pleas from the parents of a 26-year old man who died earlier this year after falling into the cold waters.
Visiting from Vermont for a business conference, Ryan Schroeder stumbled into the Inner Harbor and died in February. Immediately after, his parents begged city officials to increase the number of safety features around the waterfront. He struggled in the waters for 40 minutes before rescue workers arrived to pull him out. There were no guardrails where he fell and no ladders accessible.
The city is adding a total of 16 ladders and 35 emergency life ring stations in areas near bars and with high foot traffic, with 60 percent of the new safety measures already in place.
There is no information as to the identity or circumstances of this most recent death of the unidentified woman.
