RRFW Riverwire - Body of Missing Grand Canyon Boater Located

RRFW Riverwire - Body of Missing Boater Located
September 15, 2018

The body of missing commercial river trip passenger Mike Howard was located Friday, September 14, 2018, near 94 Mile Canyon in the Colorado River.

Mr. Howard and his wife were participants on a Canyoneers river concessions motorized tour boat river trip in Grand Canyon National Park. The river trip had stopped for lunch at the mouth of a side canyon named Clear Creek, on September 7, 2018, when Mr. Howard’s wife fell off the boat into swift water.

A strong swimmer, Mr. Howard dove into the river. Neither was wearing a life jacket. Mr. Howard reached his wife and then the couple entered Zoroaster Rapid, below Clear Creek. Mr. Howard was not seen again.

Howard’s unresponsive wife was pulled from the river and cardio pulmonary resuscitation was begun. Fortunately, Mrs. Howard responded to that rescue effort. She was transported by helicopter to Flagstaff Medical Center and later released.

Our condolences to the family.
