Hiker Dies Of Injuries Suffered In Fall

Channel Islands National Park

National Park News

A 22-year-old man died last Saturday afternoon after a 60-foot fall off the cliff at Potato Harbor on Santa Cruz Island. Trevor Correia, a student from Santa Barbara City College, landed on a ledge situated about 60 feet below the top of the cliff and well over 200 feet above the harbor. Ranger Randy Nelson responded after being notified at about 2:30 p.m. by one of Correia’s friends. He and two other park employees were able to safely descend the slope at Potato Harbor, where they found two bystanders assisting Correia. Nelson found Correia unconscious, unresponsive, and with labored breathing. Initial emergency medical treatment and monitoring continued until a Ventura County Sherriff’s Department search and rescue helicopter arrived with paramedics. Shortly following their arrival, Correia’s condition worsened and CPR was begun, but he did not survive.
