Man Stuck After Rafting Trip

Gruene, TX — The bad luck of Friday the 13th. A 49 year old man, Frank Archible from Austin, was sucked under the bridge where Gruene Road crosses the Guadalupe. After a rafting trip, that was to end at 6:40 pm, something went wrong as the group tried to exit their raft. The group consisted of 4 women 1 man and their guide. All were able to get out of the raft before it was sucked under the bridge except the man, from Austin. A swift water rescue team was sent in to try to free the man and after the Corps of Engineers reduced the flow in the river from 2000 CFS to 300 CFS the river level dropped enough to free the raft and rescue the body of the man.
