I think you missed the flush drowning on the Lawson section of Clear Creek of a commercial passenger.

Was the Eagle one flush or health problems? Also, wasn't Hansen, Shoshone a recirculation with maybe head injury?

Also, are you talking about all accidents, or only fatal accidents?

Sad to hear about all of these. As mentioned before, it really seems like most of the ones with "Inexperience/no PFD/inproper equipment" are preventable. What can we do to minimize these deaths?

i think that charlie walbridge pretty much deals with fatal accidents. when i saw his post, fatalities jumped into my mind. i did not realize that his post just said accidents before i wrote my last reply. if it were every whitewater accident the list would be a lot bigger that it is.
