Man Jumps To Death From Chasm View Overlook

Black Canyon Of The Gunnison National Park

National Park News

Rangers and members of the park’s volunteer climbing ranger team recovered the body of a 21-year-old man at the base of Chasm View overlook on Friday, September 19th. He’d been reported missing on Tuesday, and rangers found his car at the overlook after receiving an “attempt to locate” message from the local sheriff’s office. Rangers spotted what appeared to be a body at the base of the overlook, an observation that was confirmed by members of a hasty search team who hiked into the canyon that afternoon. A recovery team entered the canyon and prepared the body for extraction via helicopter long-line. Investigators determined that he’d fallen about 1800 feet. A forensic autopsy was conducted and the medical examiner has ruled the death a suicide.
