Butte County Sheriff Fred Lamphere says three people from Rapid City died in a canoeing accident on the Belle Fourche River.
Lamphere says the canoe went over a dam and was sucked into the turbulent waters below late Sunday morning.
The victims were identified as 38-year-old Jeramy Rogers, 11-year-old daughter Sierra Rogers and 26-year-old Andrew Korth, a family friend.
The only person to survive the accident - 8-year-old Isabella Rogers, another daughter - walked two hours to U.S. Highway 212 and flagged down a motorist.
