SALEM, Ore. (AP) - Authorities identified a swimmer who drowned in Oregon this week as a 25-year-old man from Hong Kong who had been studying in the United States for the past seven years.

Kung Shing Yau went underwater Monday and never resurfaced at Three Pools, a popular swimming spot east of Salem. Kayakers found his body two days later.

The Marion County Sheriff’s Office says he was a student at Linn-Benton Community College.
