Two Accidental Deaths Over The Weekend

Two people died while recreating in Carbon County over the weekend, one while rafting and the other in an ATV accident. Emergency crews responded to the Encampment River Friday evening to reports of a person who was ejected from a raft.  The body of 26-year-old Lane Swedlund of Laramie was recovered from the river about a quarter mile from the Smelter Riverside launch. Attempts to revive Swedlund were unsuccessful. Neither Swedlund nor the other two occupants of the raft were wearing life jackets. In the other incident 13-year-old Anthony Murry was killed Saturday in an ATV accident in the Ryan Park area. Murry was ATV riding with his cousin when he collided with a tree. Murry, who was wearing a helmet at the time of the accident, was pronounced dead on the scene.
