Hikers Reassess their Adventure Preparedness As Another Fatality was Reported from Half Dome Cables in Yosemite

Six people die every week in National Parks according to National Park Service

Woodbridge, United States - September 12, 2019 /MarketersMedia/ —

A park visitor tragically died after slipping and falling to her death while scaling the steepest section of Half Dome in Yosemite National Park, officials said in a statement released on Friday.

29-year-old Danielle Burnett, from Lake Havasu City, Arizona, fell 500 feet at about 11:55 am Thursday into the steep, rocky terrain. She was deceased when park rangers found her. National Park Public Affairs Officer, Scott Gediman, said in a statement that the incident remains under investigation.

Over the years, Half Dome has claimed the lives of 13 individuals, with about 300 accidents reported in the area. Many of these accidents occur near the smooth granite portion of the cliff where Burnett fell., Yosemite recorded three significant incidents, including one fatality, weeks before the accident which claimed Burnett’s life. Park officers said in their statement that "although others may be engaging in the same activity, do not perceive popularity as an endorsement of your safety."

This new incident prompted park officials to strongly advise visitors to take extra precautionary measures and act responsibly during their excursion. When a fatality or other serious incident befalls a national park or other well-known area, adventurers and tourists tend to look to themselves, wondering if they are best prepared for any incident or scenario. Though no amount of gear would have helped Ms. Burnett in her tragic, untimely fall, hikers should take this catastrophe to reassess their adventure preparedness.

"I bought this First Aid Kit for my hiking backpack before taking a vacation to the mountains. It had mostly everything that I wanted, besides a tourniquet which I bought separately. The kit is very well organized, and the supplies seem to be high-quality. Thankfully I didn't have to use anything besides a band-aid from it while hiking, but it was nice to know that I had everything I needed in case if something were to happen!

Feb 27, 2020

HONG KONG — Riot police stormed several malls in Hong Kong on Sunday in a move to thwart more pro-democracy protests, as the city's leader heads to Beijing for talks on deepening economic integration between the semi-autonomous Chinese territory and mainland China.

BEIJING — China on Wednesday accused the U.S. of having "weaponized" the issuance of visas following the reported inability of a top Chinese space program official to obtain permission to travel to a key conference in Washington. Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying told reporters that the head of the Chinese delegation to the International Astronautical Congress wasn't able to obtain a visa following an Oct. 12 interview, making it difficult for Chinese representatives to attend important events at the meeting.
