An American Falls teenager died in a water accident this past weekend on the Boise River.
She is 18-year-old Taylor Smith, a recent graduate of American Falls High School.
Elmore County sheriff’s officials said a citizen reported the rafting accident Wednesday afternoon, on the South Fork of the Boise River.
The Idaho Press reports, four people had been floating on inner tubes from the Featherville Bridge to the Johnson Bridge and encountered a log jam which forced them off their tubes and into the water.
Three people managed to get out of the water, the fourth, who we now know was Smith, was pulled under the water.
Her body was recovered the next day.
Smith was a cheerleader and enjoyed dancing, and taught dance at a local studio.
