CENTRAL OREGON -- A 68-year-old man from Washougal, Washington drowned in the Deschutes River last Thursday after the raft he was in flipped.  The Oregonian reports Michael Marquand was on the second day of a trip with his wife, grandson and a family friend, when their raft hit a rock and flipped near Boxcar Rapids. It took almost a half hour to right the raft and when they did Marquand was floating away. The family pursued him but by the time they got to him he had drowned. Wasco County Sheriff’s Deputy Scott Williams, says Marquand…who had forty years of rafting experience…was wearing a life jacket but it may not have been properly fastened.
