I’m Charlie Walbridge, Safety Editor and Accident Database Manager for American Whitewater. Each year I try to collect reports of whitewater accidents involving canoe, kayak, and raft paddlers of all skill levels. I depend on help from the paddling community to forward reports as they encounter them. If you hear of a fatal accident or near miss in fast water or rapids, please forward newspaper articles, chat room posts, or reports to me at email@example.com.
Please copy and paste the text of articles rather than providing links, which often go dead after a short time. You can also post reports on the American Whitewater Accident Database found on our website (https://www.americanwhitewater.org/content/Safety/view/) or message me on Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/ccwalbridge)
