Minnetonka man dies while canoeing in Quetico; wife rescued

Email

A Minnetonka, Minn., couple's north woods canoe trip ended tragically when their boat capsized and the man was lost in the rapids of a river along the Canadian border.

Seventy-five-year-old Elaine Barber and her 78-year-old husband, Dick, were on a three-week wilderness trip when their canoe overturned Sunday in the rapids of the Basswood River in Quetico Provincial Park in Ontario. Elaine Barber swam to shore and called for her husband, who didn't make it out of the cold rapids.
