The 26-year-old woman died after falling into a canyon in a US National Park in Utah, officials said.
The woman’s body was discovered Sunday night in the Mysterious Canyon in Zion National Park, the National Park Service said.
According to visitors, the woman went canyoning alone and fell on Saturday afternoon from a height of 15 to 24 meters. The crews began search and rescue operations, which closed various sections of the park.
A helicopter was sent to rescue the woman, but it was not possible to pull her out “because of the steep narrow walls of the canyon,” the park service said in a statement. Later, doctors reached the woman, and soon she died.
According to representatives of the park, the woman had injuries similar to a fall from a height. Her name was not revealed immediately.
The woman was reported to have engaged in canyoning, a practice or sport of following a body of water through a canyon, walking, swimming, rafting, rock climbing, rappelling, or other similar means.
The National Park Service and Washington County Sheriff’s Office investigated the death.
