Rafting the Snake - Good Safety Record but Tragedy Strikes Here

Before Friday's accident, only three people had drowned in the past 56 years on the Snake inside the park's borders.

Two were involved in boating accidents; the third was a fisherman who slipped and fell into the river.

About 63,000 people float the Snake River on commercially guided trips in Grand Teton each summer, according to the park.

That’s a pretty good safety record for the park.
