SHERIDAN, Colo. (AP) -- Sheridan police have identified the man as Dustin Vollert. They say he was swimming in the Platte River last night with his 4-year-old son, 9-year-old stepson and their baby sitter.
Vollert pulled the boys out of the river when they began having trouble, but then fell in.
The juveniles' names are being withheld at the family's request.
Rescue crews recovered Vollert's body this morning about 75 yards from where he fell in the river.
