Two women put in for a sunny float on a hot day in a very small raft, just above the Seventh Mountain Resort, near Bend, Oregon. They had to be very short on experience or they would never have taken a 3-man raft into whitewater. They had to be unaware they were approaching a Class V rapid. Perhaps they mistook the take-out above Lava Island Falls as a put-in. They obviously missed or chose to ignore the the warning signs. One survived; one did not. So very sad for the victim's family.
