There still seems to be a question to some on if this happened or not. Here is a link:

I hope I live to be 77. I hope I can still get out and do rivers at 77. I hope I don't die a slow expensive death.

They were veterans who were made aware of the risk and chose to accept that risk, and had an amazing experience on the river. I am not aware if these folks were veterans but they were still more than capable of acknowledging and accepting the risks associated with rafting on Westwater Canyon with their families. I hope that if I am bound to a wheelchair in my older years, that someone will give me the opportunity to enjoy the thrill and pleasure of white water rafting, even if it kills me. To those guides who had that experience, kudos to you, for providing that opportunity to the people who probably would not have had it otherwise, and handling it as professionally as you did at the ramp after the trip.
