An 11th grade camper at Camp Ramah Darom was killed during an accident on a white-water rafting trip. Andrew Silvershein, of Davie, Fla., died when his raft capsized June 19 on the first day of a trip on the Ocoee River in Tennessee. Six other campers who had been with Silvershein on the raft made it back to shore safely. Silvershein remained trapped under a rock, under the water's surface, according to Southern Jewish Life Magazine. A paddle reportedly was used to free him, but CPR efforts failed.
