Officials with the Boise Police Department confirmed late Saturday that a 32-year-old Boise man died from injuries after being swept into the Boise River while fishing earlier that morning.

Members of the Boise Fire Dive Team were able to retrieve the body of the man, but only after he was in the water for nearly an hour.

The Ada County Coroner's Office will release the man's death after determining the official cause of death.

The Boise Fire Department Dive Team pulled a man out of the Boise River early Saturday morning. The man, identified only as a 32-year-old male from Boise, was unresponsive and was rushed to a nearby hospital.

Dive team rescuers, with the assistance of Boise Police, were called just after 7 a.m. Saturday to the river near the Parkcenter Bridge. After talking to witnesses, Boise Police said they had reason to believe that the victim was a fisherman who fell into the deep, swift and very cold waters.

Rescuers were able to locate the man and pull him from the water at a take-out near Ann Morrison Park.
