Accident Description


 
On June 7th The Grand Junction, Colorado Daily Sentinel carried a story that a woman was missing after a canoe capsized. Mary Faulk, 39 was paddling with her husband on May 31st when their boat capsized in the Black Rock area of the Colorado River. The spot is two miles east of the Utah border, upstream of Westwater Canyon. It contains a strong current but no major rapids. Neither paddler was wearing a life vest. Her husband made it to shore safely and flagged a train, and railroad personnel in turn radioed authorities.  Her body was recovered on June 6th after a long search through rugged country.
