Virginia man dies on Colorado rafting trip

Colorado is beautiful in all seasons. But Colorado's mountains and rivers can be dangerous, too.

A 67-year-old Virginia man died Tuesday when his raft overturned on the Arkansas River near Buena Vista, Colorado, located 100 miles southwest of Denver. Though Oscar Stevenson was on a commercial rafting trip, and even though the guide and others pulled him from the river, he still drowned. He was from Eastville, Virginia.

The accident was reported in the Breckenridge newspaper.
