Accident Description


We have a sketchy report that Bennie Hicks, 56, died after being pulled from the river at White Rock Rapids on the Colorado River in Grand County, Utah on July 22nd. He was apparently paddling with his wife when he flipped, swam, and was pulled ashore by rafters. He may have collapsed after his swim. We have no further information and anyone who knows what happened is urged to contact the Safety Committee.
