From "The Coloradoan", the Ft. Collins newspaper:
Drowning victim seemed 'a natural' for river rafting guide job
By NIKOLAUS OLSEN
A Fort Collins man who died Saturday near Glenwood Springs while training to be a river rafting guide was an avid outdoorsman who seemed to be a natural for the job.
Jason Hansen, 30, died after falling out of a raft as it maneuvered through a section of Glenwood Canyon. He is the first person to die this year on the Colorado River.
Hansen was training with 12 other people from the Fort Collins-based Mountain Whitewater Descents. His coworkers were able to pull him from the river less than a minute after he fell in, but attempts to resuscitate him were not successful.
