Two women died after two separate whitewater rafting accidents in East Tennessee Saturday and Sunday.

According to authorities, Sunday’s victim was going through “Grumpy’s Rapid” on Ocoee River when she ended up in the river. Two kayakers pulled the woman to shore and she was taken to the hospital. However, she did not make it.

Another woman in her mid-30s from Atlanta died going through the same rapids Saturday.
