If you noticed a brief spurt of emergency activity at Jamaica Pond, don't worry. Initial reports of a body in the water were thankfully incorrect.
Boston fire, EMS and a dive team responded to Jamaica Pond around 1:30 p.m. Sunday after a caller reported seeing a body in the water. Upon arrival, however, first responders found a large trash bag, instead.
Fireifghters believe the initial caller was merely mistaken. Responding companies cleared the scene quickly after confirming it wasn't a body.
This was the second time in as many months emergency peronnel responded to the pond for reports of a body. A woman's body was discovered in the pond on Aug. 31. Police determined no foul play was involved in that previous incident.
