PUEBLO, Colo. (AP) - Authorities have recovered the body of a Colorado Springs man who jumped from the Royal Gorge Bridge in southern Colorado.

Fremont County Coroner Randy Keller tells The Pueblo Chieftain (https://goo.gl/SosyMG ) that 26-year-old Jordan Loriss’ body was pulled from the Arkansas River late Saturday, 18 days after he jumped from the bridge.

The body was spotted in swift water Saturday afternoon.

Several people saw Loriss jump from the bridge April 6. The suspension bridge spans the Arkansas River at a height of 956 feet.
