SALMON, Idaho (AP) -- A Coeur d'Alene pediatrician has drowned during a guided rafting trip on the Middle Fork of the Salmon River.
Lemhi County Sheriff Lynn Bowerman says 57-year-old Maj StormoGipson died on July 26.
Bowerman says the guides discussed navigating around a tree in the water, but StormoGipson's kayak hit the tree. She was thrown into the water and somehow became hung up in branches under the water.
Bowerman says she was under water for 8 to 10 minutes. Efforts to resuscitate her were unsuccessful.
