Kayaker Death

An Asheville man who just graduated from Furman University last month has died in a kayaking accident in Idaho.

Officials in Boise County, Idaho say 22-year-old Eric Weigle was kayaking with friends Wednesday night when he flipped over and hit his head. Officials say he had been traveling with friends on a 21 day whitewater rafting trip. Wednesday was their last day of rafting before returning to North Carolina.

The area they were kayaking is considered one of the most challenging class five rapids in North America.

Weigle's Facebook page says he graduated from the Asheville School in 2009 and graduated from Furman this year after studying chemistry.
