Fresno searchers recover body of drowned man in river

FRESNO, Calif.

20-year-old Nick Gilbert was following some friends when he tried to cross the river on Sunday and was swept under water.

The Fresno Fire Department, American Ambulance and other agencies sent diving teams, a rescue boat and a helicopter to search for the man but did not find him.

Officials warn that the San Joaquin is cold and deep with a fast-moving current this time of the year due to snow melt.
