The scene is familiar - a group of accountants out for a weekend adventure to escape the humdrum routine of their day-to-day lives. This weekend is white water rafting down the Ococee river, though the thick Georgia clay colors the water, making it less white and more a dull red, an ominous portent that escapes their notice.
In the eight years that the Ococee Board of Recreation has operated, no serious injuries have ever been recorded from rafters. Today, that untarnished record will be tragically broken.
Pictured here are the doomed Weekend Warriors, though it is better to die living than live dying.
