Response to June, 2004 Rescues

 

A 14-year-old California boy is dead after falling about one thousand feet during a Boy Scout hike in Zion National Park.

The National Park Service says Kristoffer N. Jones of Long Beach, California, fell off a cliff at Angels Landing around three o'clock yesterday. A search and rescue crew had to rappel to get to the body and the effort was suspended when it got dark.

The boy's body was recovered it at six o'clock this morning.
