RAWLINS, Wyo. - Authorities say a 32-year-old Denver man died after he was swept away by the North Platte River in southern Wyoming's Carbon County.

The sheriff's office says Derick Scovill was camping with his parents and other family members in the Miracle Mile area when he fell into the river Monday. His body washed ashore two miles downstream about an hour and a half after he fell in.

The Rawlins Times reports a camper found the body and called authorities.
