Authorities have recovered one man's body but are looking for two other people missing after weekend accidents on the water in the South Carolina Lowcountry.
    
Berkeley County Coroner Bill Salisbury says the body of a man was recovered early Tuesday morning by a fisherman. The body is thought to be that of one of two boaters reported missing following separate accidents Saturday on the Cooper River.
    
The second boater has not yet been found.
    
The search resumed in northern Beaufort County on Tuesday for a swimmer who was pulled away from the shore while swimming in Wimbee Creek on Monday afternoon. Searchers looked for the missing swimmer until the search was suspended early Monday evening.
