Accident Description


On May 2 Brad Parker, a guide for a non-profit group, was in an 8-man raft making his second run of the day. They capsized at "The Wall" on the Colorado near Glenwood Springs. The group reached shore, counted heads, and realized that their guide was missing. Emergency personnel found the victim well downstream of the incident. CPR was used without success.
