A 61-year-old Iowa man has drowned on a river in the northwest corner of the state.

The Buena Vista County Sheriff's department says the incident was reported around 2:30 p.m. Saturday.
Witnesses told authorities that Wiese went into the river while working with a boat and never resurfaced.

Authorities say Wiese and his small boat were swept away by the current as he was trying to unload the boat.
