Yeah, that's really sad. 4 deaths already - Ark (last weekend, fell out of PFD - not tightened properly), the Gunni (a rafter w/o PFD), Poudre (tuber w/o PFD) and don't know where or PFD situation of 4th. Does anyone know?
There were 7 deaths total last year (6 on the Ark & 1 on Clear Creek, if I remember correctly) and already this year in 8 days - 4!!! Very sad.
Lesson- Don't under-estimate the power of water (especially big water) and over-estimate ability. And oh yeah ALWAYS wear PFD!
I know one part that contributed to my wrap was misjudging the force of the water as it got bigger.
