Anyone in Denver area?

I read that a barefooter was killed on Lake Standley near Westminster when the boom broke. Just wondered if anybody had any more details as to how that happened.

Saw that too. Sad 43 years old. Thoughts and prayers go out to his family.

Yes, very sad. He was from Tallahassee originally, where I live now. Friends of mine knew him, so sorry to hear the news.

Ah, that is better. Still heart breaking for the family involved but it's better than 2 people losing their lives.

Have not heard the details yet as to whether it was the boom itself, rigging, or other?
