DROWNINGS ON ARKANSAS RIVER

On June 21, 2020 at approximately 1:24 p.m., the Pueblo Police and Pueblo Fire Department personnel responded to the area of 4 Reservoir Road, an area adjacent to the Arkansas River, concerning a water rescue. Information provided was two males, an adult male and juvenile male, had been ejected from a raft and were trapped in a river hydraulic.

After several minutes, the raft emerged from the current with both males entangled in attached rope. Fire personnel entered the river at a point less than a mile downriver from the involved dam and intercepted the raft, dragging the two persons, both wearing flotation vests, to shore where they were declared deceased.

Both males will be identified by the coroner. ###
