Four American tourists and their tour guide were killed on Oct. 18 when their raft capsized on the Naranjo River in southwestern Costa Rica. The river was swollen by heavy rains, and the conditions were windy at the time of the incident. Two other rafts being used by the group also capsized, but no other deaths occurred.

At press time, Costa Rica was investigating the raft company, which had not been publicly named.
