ASPEN, Colo. - One man is dead after falling out of a raft into the Roaring Fork River while on a rafting trip.

 


Witnesses say, around 3 p.m. Monday afternoon two men fell out while going through the rapids. Both made it back to the raft, but one of them was short of breath and became unconscious.

 



The man was then transported to Aspen Valley Hospital by ambulance, but he did not survive. The Pitkin County coroner lists his name as James Sizemore.
