Wright County search and rescue crews have recovered the body of a man who disappeared in the Crow River while tubing with two friends Saturday.
Authorities identified the deceased late Saturday night as 64-year-old Andrew Urbanski, of Maplewood.
Sheriff’s deputies responded to a call for help just before 5 p.m. after a report of a man going underwater. Two friends of the man told authorities that he failed to resurface after his inner tube hit a tree and flipped. They had been tubing from Hanover to Dayton.
Rescue personnel searched for nearly three hours in an area close to NE. 36th Circle in St. Michael, said Lt. Todd Sandin. Urbanski’s body was discovered in the water just before 8 p.m., not far from where he was last seen by friends.
