Wife files wrongful death lawsuit against rafting company

Posted: Updated:
ASPEN, Colo. (AP) -

The wife of a Maryland man who died during a rafting trip down the Roaring Fork River filed a lawsuit accusing a Colorado rafting company of negligence and fraud.
The Aspen Times reports Allison Parker filed a lawsuit Friday against Aspen Whitewater Rafting in the death of her husband, James Abromitis, who died June 15, 2016, after he was ejected from a boat two separate times.
The lawsuit claims the company "knowingly misrepresented and concealed the nature and danger" of the water, and then "engaged in grossly negligent and intentionally reckless conduct" causing Abromitis to be tossed twice from the boat.
Aspen Whitewater Rafting owner Jim Ingram said he didn't know about the lawsuit and referred questions to his lawyer. That lawyer did not return a phone message seeking comment.
