Authorities recover body of Iowa tuber

CEDAR FALLS, Iowa (AP) — Authorities have recovered the body of a 19-year-old Waterloo man who went missing while tubing down the Cedar River in eastern Iowa.

The Black Hawk County Sheriff’s Office says Andre Tims was found Wednesday morning about 3 miles downstream from where he went missing.

Authorities say Tims was tubing with several people Sunday evening when his tube was caught by the river current and forced into a large debris area near Black Hawk Park. The tube tipped over and Tims, who was unable to swim, was thrown out.
