A hiker fell 30 feet to his death while hiking in a Salt Lake area canyon on Monday morning.
The victim’s name has not been released but it’s known that he was 22 years old and was hiking with a friend in Neffs Canyon when he fell to his death. Unified Police say that they received the call at around 11 a.m. and that a search-and-rescue team was sent out alongside a medical helicopter.
