WEST GLACIER, Mont. (AP) — A 79-year-old Florida man has died in a fall in Glacier National Park while trying to scramble up an off-trail slope with a group of friends.
Park officials say Monday morning’s incident happened on Rising Wolf Mountain, several hundred feet above a campground.
Members of the group descended to the victim’s location and yelled down to the campground for help and called 911.
A search helicopter transported the unconscious man to a ranger station where he was declared deceased.
The bodies of two 67-year-old Montana men who died in a fall on Dusty Star Mountain in the park’s interior were also recovered Monday.
