Rafting Death - 2nd in Idaho

AP- The Idaho County sheriff’s office says a Missoula, Mont. man has died in a rafting accident on the Lochsa River in north-central Idaho.

Chief Deputy Jim Gorges told the Lewiston Tribune that the rafting accident happened Wednesday afternoon. The man’s name is being withheld until his family members can be notified.

It’s the second fatal rafting accident on the Lochsa River this year.

The river was running at about 14,000 cubic feet per second on Wednesday high for this time of year. The Lochsa is well-known for its continuous string of class III and IV rapids.
