DINOSAUR, Colo. (AP) — A California man was killed in a weekend rafting accident in northwestern Colorado. Officials with Dinosaur National Monument say 47-year-old Anthony Vasi of Newport Beach, California, died Saturday at Triplet Falls while on a commercial rafting trip with family and friends on the Green River.

The National Park Service says the raft got stuck on rocks and several passengers were thrown into the fast-moving water.

Park officials were notified about the accident by satellite text at 12:40 p.m. Saturday.
