Montana authorities say a woman who drowned in the Blackfoot River Tuesday afternoon is identified as Maxcine Viola Smith, 70, of Gresham, Oregon. Sheriff's Captain Rich Maricelli says Smith was rafting with her grown daughter and 15-year-old granddaughter, along with three other people. Smith and her daughter fell overboard when the raft hit a wave, and the daughter was able to make it back to shore, but Smith was carried away by the current. Maricelli says Smith's body was recovered about three miles from where she fell into the river.
