SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — Authorities have called off the search for a man who reportedly was calling for help in the Sacramento River.

Witnesses told authorities that they saw a man struggling on a small raft around 4:30 a.m. Tuesday and screaming for help near Tower Bridge.

A man living on a nearby boat told police that he went out to help but all he found was a coat in the water.

Sacramento firefighters arrived in a water rescue boat and searched the area, but found nothing. They suspended the search around 5:30 a.m. because of the strong current, determining that no one could have survived in the 40-degree water for that long.
