The Coast Guard has recovered the body of a man from the lower Niagara River in upstate New York.
The Niagara County Sheriff's Office says it got a report of a body in the river about 2 p.m. Friday.
Authorities say they haven't yet determined the man's identity or how he died.
Searchers spent much of last weekend in the area trying unsuccessfully to find a 22-year-old college student from China who was swept away by strong currents after wading into the river to cool off during a weekend barbeque.
