A Federal Way rafter died after falling into the Skykomish River east of Gold Bar on Sunday.
James C. Bryant, 33, was rafting the river in a group with a company based out of Peshastin.

The Snohomish County Medical Examiner’s Office determined Bryant died of cardiac arrest related to cold water exposure.
