Student Survives 100 Foot Smugglers Notch Fall on Mount Mansfield

WCAX reports Andrew Haile survived a 100 foot fall down a ravine on Smuggler’s Notch on Mount Mansfield.
Haile was helped to walk off the mountain and was taken to the hospital.

The section of trail is notorious for such accidents because it looks deceptively easy at first but gets much more difficult with steep gullies and has unstable ledges.
