FORT COLLINS, Colo. (AP) - Authorities have released the name of a man who died after falling into the Poudre River in northern Colorado.

The Fort Collins Coloradoan reports (https://goo.gl/migqEn ) 33-year-old Eric McIntyre, of Loveland, was not wearing a life vest when he fell into a deep and fast-flowing section of the river while trying to retrieve a raft Friday night. Searchers found his body Saturday afternoon less than a mile downstream.

The Larimer County coroner’s office has ruled McIntyre’s death an accident.

Justin Whitesell, emergency operations manager for the sheriff’s office, says people should wear a life vest even if they are only walking on the rocks near the riverbank.
