Death on the Poudre... probably

No life jacket, high water, cold water, low head dams =

Searcher: Man missing in Poudre River was not wearing a life jacket | | The Coloradoan

"The river is running at 500 feet per minute"????? What the heck is that supposed to mean?

Very sad. People are just not aware of fast moving water. I saw it yesterday in Golden even.
