Authorities Identify 2 People Who Died After Fall At Arches National Park
MOAB, Utah – The Grand County Sheriff’s Office on Monday released the identities of two people who fell to their deaths at Arches National Park on Nov. 29.
In a statement, authorities identified the deceased as Toshiaki Amimoto, 65; and Etoko Amimoto, 60.
A 30-year-old male survived the fall but was seriously injured. He was transported by helicopter to a local hospital.
According to GCSO, the family of three, from Torrence, California, were hiking a steep slope in a sandstone bowl next to Delicate Arch when they fell.
The weather was intermittent rain and snow at the time, and Arches National Park released a statement later warning visitors that “winter conditions make for slippery hiking; proceed with caution.”
The incident is currently under investigation by the National Park Service and Grand County Sheriff’s Office.
