Brit dies on adventure holiday in white-water rafting accident

A British man has died in a white-water rafting accident while on an adventure holiday in Alaska.

Sky News reports that Stephen Morton fell from a boat while exploring the rapids of Six Mile Creek in Alaska.

The 47-year-old from Cambridge is believed to have been part of a 10-man team. He was pulled from the water on Tuesday by other boaters, but was unconscious and not breathing.

Paramedics managed to revive him, but after being airlifted to hospital in Anchorage he died overnight.

His body has been sent to the State Examiner's Office where a post-mortem will be carried out.

An Alaska State Troopers spokesman said the raft Mr Morton was travelling in when it capsized, throwing everyone overboard, was operated by NOVA River Runners.
