This year has seen a spike in Colorado waterway fatalities. But, as KRCC’s Dana Cronin reports, those in the rafting industry continue to predict a good season overall.
Four deaths have occurred during commercial rafting trips in Colorado this year, including two on the Arkansas River. This comes after several years without incident.
David Costlow, director of the Colorado River Outfitters Association, says it’s still unclear whether there are any trends among the fatalities.
