Pioneer of Hudson River rafting charged with endangering clients

Listen to this story
Patrick Cunningham is one of the pioneers of the Hudson River rafting industry, and one of the first guides to open the wildest stretches of river to commercial trips.

Now in his early 70s, Cunningham has also emerged as one of the sport's most controversial figures.

Brian Mann spoke about Cunningham's case with Mary Thill, who has been covering this story for Adirondack Life magazine.
