Palisade, Colo. (KKCO) --- A man in his mid-forties was found in the Colorado River today near I-70 and highway 6 & 24 in Palisade.

The man was pronounced dead on the scene from what appears to be drowning, but the coroner will announce the official cause of death after performing an autopsy.

Officials believe that he was floating down the river with a group of people and that alcohol may have been involved in the incident.
