Teen Dies After Falling Off Moab Rim Trail!

The Moab City Police Department says that a teen from Moab, Utah, fell to her death on the Moab Rim Trail in the Kane Creek Canyon area on Friday afternoon.

Authorities say that the 17-year-old fell 30 feet off a cliff when he slipped while hiking with a group of friends. Her friends tried to help her and called 911, but there was no safe way to do either.

Zoe McKinney is the teen’s name, as told by her school district and the Moab City Police Department. Search, and rescue teams quickly climbed to the area above the teen.

The police say they used harnesses and climbing gear with ropes to lower themselves down to the victim. But Zoe had already died from the fall, and police say that rescuers spent the next two hours trying to find her body.
