We do not know many details only what we have seen online but this is really heart breaking and something all paddlers fear. Check out distressed mullets article and donate if you are able to help this paddlers family.
A Husband and Father was taken too early from his family while paddling, its something (like the article says) that could happen to any of us at any time. Never say never and always try be safe when you paddle (Especially when you go solo).
This paddler had a leash, pfd, and told people he was paddling and still was unfortunate. Just remember you never know when its your time so always tell your family and friends you love them. Please donate if you feel moved to.
Prayers to the Frye Family today!!!
