Alaska State Troopers say a man from Miami died in Skagway after going for a swim Friday afternoon in front of a docked cruise ship.
Troopers identified the man as 32-year-old William Anthony Rodriguez.
They said in an online report that Rodriguez reportedly jumped into the water near Skagway’s cruise ship dock.
“The individual began to struggle in the area along the bow and then sank in the water,” it said.
Authorities say an eyewitness saw the man sink near the bow of the Norwegian Jewel cruise ship. Multiple agencies began a search.
Divers recovered the body on Saturday.
