A 38-year-old Grand Junction man was pulled from Gunnison River about 4 p.m. today after he disappeared while swimming with friends, according to the Mesa County Sheriff's Department.
The Mesa County coroner's office is investigating the suspected drowning. The man has not been named, pending notification of next of kin.
The man was not wearing a life vest when he went under the water in the Orchard Mesa area at about 2 p.m. His body was found by divers just below the roller dam of the Gunnison River, a half-mile south of where the Gunnison River meets the Colorado River, authorities said.

Condolences to the family, but you got to wear a pfd.
