CASCADE, Idaho (AP) Authorities say a North Las Vegas man died during a rafting incident in the central Idaho wilderness.

The Valley County sheriff's office says 53-year-old David Glenn died Saturday afternoon in an incident on the Middle Fork of the Salmon River in the Frank Church River of No Return Wilderness.

The sheriff's office says Glenn and his son were in a raft that overturned in rapids. Glenn floated through another rapid before he was pulled out of the water.

An unsuccessful CPR attempt was performed on Glenn.

Authorities say Glenn was wearing a life jacket, but it was loose, causing him to ride low in the water.

The Valley County coroner's office will determine Glenn's exact cause of death.
