Man dies after falling from raft into lake near Windsor

WINDSOR, Colo. (AP) – Divers have recovered the body of a man who fell from an inflatable raft in a private lake north of Windsor.

Authorities identified the man as 22-year-old Hugo Aldana-Lopez of Severance.

Officials say Aldana-Lopez and another man fell out of the raft at about 3 p.m., possibly because they were hit by a sudden downdraft or microburst. The other man, whose name wasn’t released, swam to shore

An autopsy is scheduled to determine Aldana-Kioez’s cause of death.
