Lake Mead National Recreation Area (AZ,NV)
Teenager Killed in Fall
According to the NPS Morning Report at about 6:30 p.m. on April 5th, dispatchers received notice that a young man had fallen off rocks while hiking near White Rock Wash. Rangers and Mohave County SheriffÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Office personnel responded and found that the 17-year-old Las Vegas boy had died in the fall. Jason Kyle and two friends had been hiking when he decided to attempt to scale a wall. He was not using any climbing gear or safety equipment of any kind. Kyle reached a point where he could no longer go up the face of the rock. He was attempting to climb back down when he fell about 75 feet to his death. This area of the park is popular among hikers who visit the Arizona Hot Springs on Lake Mohave. White Rock Wash is located in Arizona and can be accessed at about mile marker 5 on U.S. 93 (south of Hoover Dam). This is the parkÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s fourth fatality this year.
