After a man drowned, officials in northern Arkansas are warning paddlers of a sinkhole that's created a unsafe whirlpool below the Sadler Falls on the Spring River.

At least one boater died Saturday after a sinkhole opened on the bed of Spring River in northern Arkansas, creating a whirlpool, according to the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission. "He was trying to get to them to help right at the top of the falls", Arkansas Game and Fish Commission spokesman Keith Stephens tells the Springfield News-Leader.

Despite the sinkhole, the river remains open while officials warn visitors who may canoe or kayak in the area.

The large sinkhole led to a whirlpool that caused the deadly boating incident, according to authorities.

Rents pricing out minimum-wage workers across the USA , report says
Nationally, someone would need to make $17.90 an hour to rent a modest one-bedroom or $22.10 an hour to cover a two-bedroom place. In Seattle, the minimum wage now ranges from $11.50 to $15 an hour depending on the size of the employer and benefits offered.

Reid, from the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission, said that in such cases when the riverbed breaks away, the water must go somewhere and, in the process, creates a current "like a bathtub drain".

The AGFC, along with U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and Fulton County, have built buoys and roped off the area where the whirlpool is located, officials said.

The commission says engineers will examine the area this week.
