WEST GLACIER, Mont. (AP) - Authorities have identified the Arizona man whose body was found in a partially frozen lake in Montana’s Glacier National Park.

Flathead County sheriff’s officials said Thursday that 48-year-old Wei Liu, of Tempe, died from hypothermia. He fell into Lake McDonald and was not able to get back to the dock because of the cold water.

A relative reported him missing Tuesday morning, and a sheriff’s office dive team recovered his body later that day.

The death remains under investigation by park authorities.
