这 National Park Service said a climber called authorities after seeing the 27-year-old man fall in the Apocalypse Couloir, a steep and narrow gorge, 在星期天. The climber said the man appeared to be unresponsive.
Teton County Search and Rescue later discovered that Radcliff Spencer, 从 怀俄明州, had fallen off a slim path while skiing in the southern part of the park.
“Resuscitation efforts were attempted but proved unsuccessful due to the nature of injuries sustained,” the park service said in a statement.
