NEW BRAUNFELS, Texas (KXAN) — A dive team at the Guadalupe River recovered the body of a man who went under and did not resurface Sunday evening.
Authorities said the man was first reported missing around 4:45 p.m. along the riverbank near the 700 block of Interstate 35.
Witnesses told first responders the man successfully swam across the river but apparently suffered a cramp while attempting to swim to the other side. His body was found around 6:30 p.m.
Authorities identified him as 27 year old Maikol Castiblanco-Espinosa from Colombia. His death has been ruled accidental.
