July 6, 2019

FORT MORGAN, Colo. (AP) — A jet ski rider and a tuber are dead in separate incidents in eastern Colorado.

Colorado Parks and Wildlife said the body of a woman missing since falling off a jet ski Thursday at Jackson Lake State Park in Morgan County was found Saturday morning.

The agency said that the woman was one of four people riding a jet ski on Independence Day when it tipped over.

Meanwhile, the Morgan County Sheriff’s Office says a woman who was tubing on the South Platte River near Fort Morgan died after deciding to ride over a low head dam on Friday. Two other women riding with her got of the water out at the dam and saw her floating unresponsive after she re-emerged in the water. She was pronounced dead at the hospital.
