SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- The National Park Service was looking for experienced divers to help find the body of a man who fell off a boat on Saturday.

The 23-year-old man stood up in the boat, fell overboard in 200 feet of water near Bullfrog Marina and failed to surface.

Rangers and divers were called at 4:30 p.m. Saturday by the man's friends and spent almost four hours at the scene.

A deep-water recovery team was being put together, and the Park Service said it needed experienced divers for a search planned for Sunday afternoon.

The man's name was withheld pending family notification.

It's the year's fifth accidental death at Glen Canyon National Recreation Area, the park service said.
