Accident Description

On July 14th, 32 year-old Pnina Gazfried was floating the Upper Delaware River with some friends. The National Park Service Morning Report said that the accident occurred near Pond Eddy, NY, about a mile below the Roebling Bridge. Ms. Gazfried suffered some sort of seizure and fell backwards into the river, which was only a foot deep, still wearing her PFD. But by the time her friends had pulled her back into the raft, she was dead.
