Boy Scout Dies After Fall

In News

In a really tragic accident a Modesto boy was killed after he fell off the trail to Upper Yosemite Fall.

KCBS: “A 12-year-old Boy Scout from Modesto died over the weekend after falling from a sheer granite cliff in Yosemite National Park.

Park Ranger Adrienne Freeman says it happened around 2:15 on Saturday afternoon when the boy and his troops were hiking on ‘Upper Yosemite Fall Trail.’

“It’s a trail that’s used very heavily, it does have quite a bit of ice and snow, but there was clearly no ice or snow in the area where the boy fell”, said Freeman.

The boy, and a scout-mate had apparently wandered away from the group when he slipped and fell about 300 feet. He was pronounced dead about an hour later.

The boy’s name hasn’t been released, and Yosemite officials can’t confirm which Boy Scout troop he belonged to. She says they’re now investigating the fall, but on the surface, the boys weren’t doing anything terribly wrong, and that it appears at this time to be just a very tragic accident.”
