Woman dies while rafting on Green River in Colorado

ECHO PARK, Colorado – Authorities say a 54-year-old woman has been killed while rafting on the Green River through Dinosaur National Monument.

The National Park Service says the woman apparently drowned Wednesday after the raft she was riding in overturned in Triplet Falls. Members of her party found her in a pool just below the falls. She was not responsive.

Her party conducted CPR for about an hour before a commercial river rafting group arrived and called the National Park Service by satellite phone. The woman was taken to Echo Park and a waiting ambulance.

The park service says no other details are available.

The Moffat County sheriff’s office and National Park Service are investigating.

Dinosaur National Monument straddles Utah and Colorado.
