DENVER (AP) - Authorities have released the name of a barefoot water skier who died after the boom he was holding onto tore away from the boat on Standley Lake northwest of Denver.

The Denver Post reports (https://goo.gl/6bS86f ) 43-year-old Theodore Radey was water skiing when the boom separated from the boat Sunday afternoon and hit him. The Denver man died at the scene.

Barefoot water skiers sometimes hold onto a boom, which is a pole that hangs over the boat and allows them to ski along the side.

Investigators have not said what caused the boom to separate from the boat.

Westminster police spokeswoman Cheri Spottke says no charges are expected.
