Arkansas officials are meeting today to decide what to do about a large sinkhole that opened in the bottom of the Spring River and killed a kayak paddler on Saturday.
A spokesman for Arkansas Fish and Game Commission said the kayaker, Donald Wright, 64, of Searcy, Arkansas, was trying to help two other paddlers who were caught in the whirlpool.
"He was trying to get to them to help right at the top of the falls," said AGFC spokesman Keith Stephens. "One of the others was injured and was med-flighted out. The other individual was able to swim to shore."
