Saw the rescue vehicles dispatched today and listening to the live audio feed of emergency services. Chaffee County, Colorado (CO) Live Police, Fire, and EMS Scanners on RadioReference.com Appears an accident at Frog Rock. Sadness to all involved.

I guess I don't understand how the radio reference scanner works...but I ran Frog with a group about 1 this afternoon. There was a group of 2 kayakers and a tandem ducky behind us, but we saw them again at House Rock.
Does anyone know what happened?

You just open the link and click on "launch the player" They are trying to shut off the water at twin lakes and do a body recovery. So sad....

Ran Fractions today, the far left line is still runnable at Frog Rock and is the def. line to take for anyone going out there.

Sad to hear it.

AVA guide boat (private) trip. First year guide was missing & apparently swam the siv on the right side. Bad place to be. Talked to a guide she was with, and he said she never came up.

Haven't heard the latest. Lots of rescue were at frog for recovery. Didn't look good

Saw a commercial raft get stuck more than once on the left line yesterday so I'd say it was marginal in a raft.

7/12/2010 8:42:00 AM Rescuers search river
Rescuers continued searching as darkness fell Sunday, seeking an unidentified woman thrown from a private raft on the Arkansas River north of Buena Vista.

A witness reported about 5:40 p.m. an unidentified female wearing a yellow personal flotation device but no helmet was seen in the river.

Chaffee County Sheriffs deputies, firefighters and rescue crews from three agencies responded. They subsequently found several other people in from the raft in various locations beside the river.

They reportedly told searchers the raft encountered a rock in the river and the woman was thrown from the craft, possibly passing under it.

Kayakers scouted the river during daylight to help searchers on east and west sides of the river. The search continued under lights.

The Arkansas River was flowing about 635 cubic feet per second at the time of the incident.
