Over the weekend, a woman who was participating in a rafting excursion on the Colorado's Arkansas River had a remarkable survival story to tell. While navigating through the Sunshine Falls area of the Royal Gorge, she encountered a harrowing incident. As shared by a representative from Performance Tours, the woman was ejected from her raft upon encountering swift-moving waters.
Miraculously, the situation took a fortunate turn when another rafter happened to be present at the scene. Chris Dean, a bystander who witnessed the event, recounted the incident. "As we approached the falls, our raft hit the turbulent waters with force, causing the woman to collide with me and fall off to the side," he said. Reacting swiftly, Dean courageously dived into the water and successfully rescued the woman. The intensity of the situation was not lost on Dean, who expressed concern for the woman's well-being. "I was genuinely frightened for her because I knew the conditions were treacherous. Additionally, I preferred not to be in the water myself, so it was an alarming experience for everyone involved," he added.
