Bridges Rafting Fatality (Poudre)

I heard via the grape vine that the guy involved in a raft pin on Killer Bridge last week passed away yesterday, but I've not seen anything in the media or on the Buzz about the accident. Anyone know what happened?

My condolences to the family,
Marty

I heard through the grape vine that it was the bridge just below BTO, and it was 4 people who rented a raft from RMA. Not sure about the experience of the 4 though.

It wasn't at Killer, it was at Headless bridge (the last bridge before the dam) and the raft was an RMA rental. They had to cut the thing off, I heard, with a. chainsaw
