18-year-old man dies tubing on Poudre River in northern Colorado

FORT COLLINS (AP) — Authorities say an 18-year-old man has died after falling off a tube on a northern Colorado River.

The Fort Collins Coloradoan reports (http://noconow.co/2sjJznE) the teen fell into the  Poudre River on Sunday. His name hasn’t been released.
