weber river accident - Man drowns while kayaking

It's been a rough year for river accidents. I am guessing that only a few of us buzzards have been lucky enough not to lose someone they know to an on-the-water accident lately. I have been trying to look at any trends and make some sense outa these (senseless) accidents but, I just don't get it. Anybody else have any ideas why 2009 has been such a lethal year?

There seems to be conflicting info on this drowning. There are reports that say he was a tuber, not a kayaker.

So many rivers, so little time..........
