ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - A woman died in a kayaking accident in the Rio Grande near Corrales.

Cmdr. Tanya Lattin of the Corrales Fire Department says a family of seven - five adults and two children - were in a couple of kayaks and a canoe Tuesday when one of the kayaks hit an eddy caused by a tree. The disturbance flipped the craft and sent the woman into the water.

The name of the woman was not released Tuesday.

Lattin says everyone in the kayak was wearing a life jacket, but the woman’s jacket was not on her when her body was found.

Lattin says she does not know what caused the woman’s life jacket to come off.

Investigators say there was no alcohol or drugs involved.
