Woman dies after being pulled from Boise River


The Boise Fire Department says a woman has died after being pulled from the Boise River Sunday.

It happened shortly before 2 p.m. Witnesses say her raft was losing air and she couldn’t get out of the river.

The Boise Fire Department says it received a report that the woman was floating unresponsive upstream from Kristin Armstrong Municipal Park.

A bystander managed to get her out of the water and started CPR before firefighters arrived on scene and took over.

The woman – who has not been identified – was taken to the hospital but did not survive.

Authorities say she was not wearing a life jacket.
