He was accompanied by his long-time girlfriend and friend when all launched into the river from Corn Lake.

They were on a raft built for shallow waters and no one in the party was wearing a life jacket.

He had purchased it at Walmart. It had came with plastic oars, and he shouldn't have had it out in these conditions, it was unsafe,” says Ctormy’s mother, Tammy Schroeder.
