Body found in South Platte River in Denver


DENVER — Denver police are recovering a body found in the South Platte River Sunday.

The Denver Post reports ( ) that it the second body found in the river since last week, when the body of a man who fell into the river while tubing earlier in June was recovered.

This year at least 12 people have died in Colorado's rivers, which have been running high due to snow melt and this spring's heavy rain.

A 20-year-old drowned Saturday on a rafting trip on Clear Creek near Idaho Springs.
