Body of second drowned man recovered

The body of one of two men who drowned Saturday in the Coeur d’Alene River after a rafting accident was recovered this morning, according to the Shoshone County Sheriff’s Office. Glen Brakeman was rafting with two friends Saturday when the raft capsized. His body was found Sunday evening by members of his family, but recovery workers were unable to remove it from the river because of limited daylight. The body of the other man who drowned was pulled from the river Saturday about 12 miles upstream from Enaville, Idaho. Authorities have not released the identity of that victim or a third man in the raft who escaped the river and called authorities from the Kingston Shell Station. The sheriff’s office, Shoshone County Search and Rescue, Shoshone County Dive Team, Kellogg Ambulance, U.S. Forest Service and local residents contributed to today’s four-hour recovery effort.
