CEDAR CITY — Investigators on Wednesday identified the man who died after falling in a rock climbing accident earlier this week.
Thomas Harley Rueben Christensen, 19, of Cedar City, fell between 20 and 30 feet while rock climbing Monday on a mountainside near state Route 14, Cedar City police said. They did not say where Christensen was from.
Search and rescue crews from Iron County attempted to resuscitate Christensen, but he died before he could be airlifted to a hospital.
Christensen was with two friends at the time of the fall, police said. He reportedly suffered a head injury and broken bones.
