Fisherman who died in the Boise River identified

BOISE, Idaho (KBOI) - The man who died after reportedly falling into the Boise River on Saturday morning has been identified.

According to the Ada County Coroner, 32-year-old Jeffrey Summerlin of Garden City died at St. Alphonsus in Boise after reports say he was swept under while fishing in the Boise River.

Witnesses say Summerlin had been fishing in the Boise River at the Parkcenter Bridge when he was swept under. According to reports, he was wearing waders that may have filled up with water, attributing to his inability to stay floating.

Summerlin was pulled out of the water at Ann Morrison Park by dive team rescuers after being in the water for nearly an hour. He was taken to St. Alphonsus where he later died.
