The body of a man who drowned has been recovered from the Red River in Fargo.
Fire Chief Steve Dirksen says the victim was swimming across the river Monday afternoon when he went under water. Dirksen says the search for the man was complicated by submerged trees and other obstacles in that section of the river.
The search began around 1:30 p.m. The man's body was recovered about 6 p.m. It's the third drowning in the Red River this summer in the Fargo area.
