JACKSON, Wyo. (AP) — A woman has died in a boating accident on a river in western Wyoming.

The 67-year-old was on a guided fishing trip on the Snake River when the drift boat she and two others were in tipped, took on water and overturned Tuesday.

Teton County Search and Rescue chief advisor Cody Lockhart says a guide and another tourist in the boat were able to swim to shore and were unhurt.

The Jackson Hole News & Guide reports rescuers reached the woman on the river about 5 miles southwest of Jackson within 45 minutes but couldn't revive her.

The woman's identity hasn't been released.
