NORFOLK, New York (WWNY) - State police have identified the man whose body was recovered from the Raquette River near Norfolk over the weekend.

Following an autopsy Tuesday, police say 66-year-old Michael Bregg died from asphyxiation caused by warm-water drowning.

Bregg was found in the water Sunday near the Norfolk Raquette River Campground.

State police say their investigation shows Bregg died as a result of a boating accident.
