The body of a man who drowned in a rafting accident on the American River Sunday has been recovered.
Sacramento Metropolitan Fire District personnel first conducted a search and rescue mission and then a recovery operation for the man who fell off a raft at the San Juan rapids on the American River in Rancho Cordova.
The body was recovered about 6:30 p.m. Sunday.
Crews were called to the rapids at around 11:20 a.m. Sunday for a water rescue. The man, wearing a life vest, was rafting with his family before he fell off the watercraft.
While the life vest resurfaced, the man never did. He has not been identified by the Sacramento County Coroner's department.
