HORSESHOE BEND, Idaho (AP) A Boise man has died in a boating accident on the Payette River in southwest Idaho.

KTVB-TV reports (http://bit.ly/2uDA29w ) that William Navarro was floating with his girlfriend down the river in a catamaran-style raft Friday night in Boise County, between Horseshoe Bend and Banks.

Boise County Sheriff's Sgt. David Anthony says Navarro fell out of the raft when they hit rapids. He had trouble getting back in before another set of rapids.

Anthony says both Navarro and his girlfriend were wearing life jackets. However, Navarro removed his life jacket after having trouble getting back onto the raft. Later, he was unable to get the life jacket back on before hitting more rapids.

Anthony says his girlfriend tried to help him but he went under water.

The Horseshoe Bend Fire Department's water rescue team found him near Beehive Bend. Medical personnel weren't able to revive him.
