For the second time in less than a week, a human body was found at the Haster Basin Park in Garden Grove.

According to the Orange County Fire Authority, firefighters received a call for medical aid at 8:40 a.m. Thursday in the area of Haster Street and Lampson Avenue.

Firefighter paramedics found the body of an adult male “in a confined area.” Two technical units with urban search and rescue personnel were able to remove the body with the help of Anaheim Fire and Rescue.

The cause of death is being investigated by Garden Grove police. 

On Sunday night, the body of a woman was found in a storm drain also at the basin park. That incident is also being investigated by the GGPD.

Thursday was a busy day in Garden Grove for the OCFA and GGPD. 

At 4:25 p.m., firefighters were dispatched to the 13100 block of Partridge Street – near Harbor Boulevard, west of Haster Street – regarding a report of two adjacent mobile homes on fire.

The fire was quickly extinguished and there were no injuries. Garden Grove police provided assistance with traffic control.
