Whirlpool created by sinkhole in river leads to deadly boating incident

The sinkhole opened up near an area of the river called "Dead Man's Curve", according to a news release from the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission.

Arkansas wildlife officials are urging boaters to avoid a section of a river in the northern part of the state after a sinkhole opened up and created a unsafe whirlpool that led to a man's death.

Arkansas Game and Fish Commission spokesman Trey Reid told The Washington Post Monday that the victim has been identified as Donald Wright, 64, from Searcy, Ark. Around noon Saturday, the resulting whirlpool was the location of a fatal boating accident.

The large sinkhole led to a whirlpool that caused the deadly boating incident, according to authorities. Family members say Wright, who ran an addiction recovery center, was an experienced kayaker-and they aren't surprised that he died while helping others.

The AGFC, along with U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and Fulton County, have built buoys and roped off the area where the whirlpool is located, officials said.

The commission said engineers will examine the area this week.
