Zoe McKinney Wiki -Zoe McKinney Biography
A 17-year-old Utah girl died Friday after falling 30 feet off a “cliff” while hiking with friends on the Moab Rim Trail, authorities said. Zoe McKinney slipped and fell off the cliff around 4:10 p.m. in the Kane Creek Canyon area, the Moab City Police Department said. “Our hearts still ache tremendously for the family and friends of this beautiful young woman,” the department said.
McKinney’s friends called 911 and tried to find a way to get to the spot where the 17-year-old fell, but police said there was no safe way to do it. First responders ran onto the trail and immediately began working their way to the area where the teen fell.
Rescuers rappelled down to the teen using harnesses and rope climbing equipment. Upon reaching the teenager, they determined that she had died from the fall. Officers worked for the next two hours to recover her body. The Grand County School District confirmed in a statement that the teen who died in the fall was McKinney, a high school student.
