A Bend man in his mid 40's has died in a kayaking accident on the Colorado River. The accident occurred before 11:40 Monday morning just below the President Harding Rapids in the Colorado River. “Members of the party had reported that they had gotten through the rapids and when they turned back to see how the rest of their party made it through. This one particular individual, his kayak was upside. They got to him as quickly as possible and tried CPR, but nothing was able to revive him.” Shannon Marcak of the Grand Canyon National Park says the man has been identified as Scott Foster, 42.   He was an Alpine Skiing Coach for the Mount Bachelor Sports Education Foundation. Chuck Kenlan of MBSEF says Foster will be missed: “”He was an amazing guy, Scott had been a Navy Seal. I believe he had been in the first Desert Storm. Real bright guy, great skier, great energy.” Officials have yet to release the exact cause of death.
