“While many outdoor experiences offer excitement, they can also result in tragedy. I encourage the public to be safety-minded while enjoying the many recreational activities in Summit County. ” -Sheriff Jaime FitzSimons
Tragic new from Colorado as The Denver Post reports the body of a 27 year old cliff jumper was recovered Wednesday from Green Mountain Reservoir. The victim dove from a high cliff but never resurfaced. The body was recovered from about 70 feet of water by a team that included a boat with sonar. The unidentified man presumably drowned.
We often feature cliff jumping videos on the website and want to remind people that there are serious consequences inherent to the activity. Our thoughts and prayers are with the victim’s friends and family.
