Two Rescued From Rivers After Rafting Accidents

DENVER (CBS4) - A 21-year-old Littleton woman spent the night along the Colorado River and awaited rescue after her raft capsized in Grand County near Rancho Del Rio.

She was one of two rafting victims who needed rescue Thursday. The other was flown to a hospital after falling into Clear Creek in Idaho Springs. Her age and condition haven't been released.

Authorities have also released the name of the woman who drowned in Wednesday's rafting accident in the Poudre River. Rescuers pulled 26-year-old Rebecca Knight of Fort Collins from the river but couldn't revive her. Knight is the third person to die in the Poudre in less than two weeks.
