COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. — Authorities say a 40-year-old man died after his kayak flipped in the Arkansas River near Buena Vista.

KRDO-TV in Colorado Springs reported that the man was pulled from the river a short time later about a mile downstream.

Buena Vista is about 70 miles west of Colorado Springs.
