Five people, all believed to be Americans, were killed when their 12-seat white water raft overturned in a stretch of wild water in British Columbia, police reported. According to U.S. relatives, one of the victims was Richard T. O'Reilly, 65, director of the New York-based Media Advertising Partnership for a Drug-Free America.
