While the 4th of July celebrations continued at the Western Colorado Botanical Gardens, just a couple yards down the river, Mesa County Search and Rescue made a gruesome discovery.
At about 11:30 a.m. Wednesday, the water rescue team was retrieving rubber ducks from the river after a fun competition, when they found a man's body.
The sheriff's department says the body had been in the river for a couple of days and no word on the man's identity or the cause of death.
