Accident Description

There was a rafting fatality on the Ocoee this past Saturday, June 18th. The man fell out of a commercial raft at Broken Nose. This is a really bad place to swim! They rescued him at Slice & Dice, some distance downstream, and began CPR. He left in an ambulance on a stretcher. He was a big man who probably had a heart attack.
