Three People Seriously Injured After Falling At Stewart Falls

PROVO, Utah — Three people were seriously injured after falling while hiking at Stewart Falls near Sundance.

The incident happened Memorial Day afternoon.

Sgt. Spencer Cannon with the Utah County Sheriff’s Office said a 43-year-old woman and a 9-year-old boy from Hawaii — who were not related — as well as a 19-year-old woman all fell.

All three incidents occurred separately and in the same location within 30 minutes of each other, Cannon said.

The 43-year-old woman fell to ground level and suffered a broken leg.

She was carried out to an ambulance.

Cannon said the 9-year-old boy and 19-year-old woman fell approximately 40 feet.

They were reported to be in serious to critical condition.

The boy was intubated with a breathing apparatus and transported to a local hospital via a LifeFlight helicopter.

The 19-year-old was apparently unconscious for several minutes, which Cannon said could indicate a head injury. She also suffered injuries to her side, hip, and arm.

Officials said they weren’t sure what exactly caused the falls.

Several crews — including the Utah County Sheriff’s Search and Rescue team, North Fork Fire, and Provo Fire — assisted in the rescues.
