Death on Upper Yellowstone

Heard on the local news that a rafter died on the Upper Yellowstone yesterday, between Gardner and Yankee Jim. No real details yet...anyone have any info?

Man killed in rafting accident near Gardiner | | Z7 | Bozeman, Montana

Sounds more like a drowning or "heart attack" type accident as flows are high, and I would not think it would be from impact with a rock etc...

Also sounds like S&R was sent out for a canoe accident on the Gally, this one had no fatalities:

"One man was cut on the leg when he and his paddling partner's canoes capsized on the Gallatin River near Squaw Creek Bridge around 4:30 p.m. The uninjured man was missing but was found safe about an hour later."
