Authorities say a 23-year-old Ida County man has drowned in an accident on the Little Sioux River near Oto in western Iowa.

Woodbury County Sheriff's Sgt. Jim Bauerly says the man was with three friends when he fell into the swift-flowing river about 10:30 a.m. Sunday.

One of the friends jumped in to help but was unable to get him out of the river.

The man's body was recovered a little before 2 p.m., about 30 yards from where he'd fallen in. His name hasn't been released yet.
