FORT COLLINS, Colo. — Several people, including two in Larimer County, have died in recreational water-related drownings this year after a record 34 deaths on Colorado waters last year.
And the water recreation season is only beginning.
Three people who have died were kayaking at the time of their deaths and none of them was wearing a life vest, according to Colorado Parks and Wildlife (CPW) officials.
