Tom Callan, KSL Newsradio Search and rescue crews have found the body of a man who died in Tibble Fork Reservoir.

The man was horseback riding yesterday evening when something spooked his horse. He was thrown from the saddle, but his foot caught in the stirrup and the horse dragged him into the reservoir.

"It was too cold. You couldn't stay in there very long, just kind of see where he was. It was pretty deep in that area," explained Jeremy Thomas.

Thomas, his brother and dad dove in the reservoir to save the man, but they couldn't find him after two hours of searching.

The man was pulled from the water this morning, and officials are working to notify his family.
