The bodies of two hunters were recovered Monday after separate accidents, according to authorities.

In Rio Blanco County, Calvin Ritter, 83, of Clallam Bay, Wash., was thrown from the horse he was riding in the Jensen State Wildlife area, approximately 10 miles north of Meeker, the Sheriff’s Department said in a news release.

Ritter was pronounced dead at the scene. County Coroner Ran Cochran said Ritter died of a heart attack.

The second death occurred in Pitkin County, when Glen Helmick, 56, of Arvada, was pinned under an overturned all-terrain vehicle he had been riding along the Fryingpan Road, the Pitkin County Sheriff’s Department said.

Helmick’s ATV overturned and rolled down a hill into the Fryingpan River, where the victim was found, the Sheriff’s Department said.
