IDAHO SPRINGS, Colo. (AP) - Authorities have identified a 20-year-old Kansas man who died Saturday afternoon while rafting on Clear Creek.

Daniel Cheong, of Wichita, Kansas, was pulled from the river by authorities responding to reports of a man in the river.

The U.S. Geological Survey said Clear Creek was running about 300 cubic feet per second Saturday afternoon, which is 130 percent of its normal median flow.

The sheriff’s office says Cheong was on a commercial trip operated by Mile-High Rafting.
