GOLDEN, Colo. -- After multiple CPR attempts, a 48-year-old woman was pronounced dead in Golden Friday. This came after she flipped off her tube and went underwater in Clear Creek. This is the first tubing death in the area in years.

“Flipped off tube in rapids and got submerged under the water and came up on the south side of the creek where she was discovered,” Golden Fire Chief John Bales said.

Three deaths in Colorado rivers this week. Also a death in the Platte. Be careful out there.

Sounds like this was in Golden? I was there recently on a Sunday and they were renting tubes, tons of people and kids tubing, way more than I've ever seen before. Guess that is the end of that experiment.

The stretch of water is extremely popular, great for people watching if you don't dive in yourself.

My son was going tubing today but in Ft Collins. You just have to be smart. When I was a kid if there were rapids we got up and walked around them.

The water's too fast and deep for that in Golden, plus don't drink and tube. That was the case in a Boulder drowning this spring.
