PALISADE, Colo. (AP) - A 45-year-old man drowned Saturday afternoon in the Colorado River near Palisade.
The (Grand Junction) Daily Sentinel reports that the man hasn't been identified (http://bit.ly/16gnzVa). He was floating with at least two other people down the Colorado River Saturday afternoon.
When authorities arrived, they found the man about 25 feet from the riverbank in less than 2 feet of water, where two of his companions were attempting cardiopulmonary resuscitation. Emergency personnel were also unable to revive him.
None of the three adults was wearing a life vest, and authorities believe alcohol may have been a contributing factor.
