As thrilling as kayaking and rafting can be, you have to remember you're in the wild.
A woman from Omaha on a commercial rafting trip with her husband and 3 kids died over the weekend on the Arkansas. She drowned. The raft flipped in rough water. Raquel Stiles was the only one who didn't make it to shore. Someone in a nearby raft pulled her from the river and performed CPR but could not revive her.
Just something you have to remember.
