Hikers Reassess their Adventure Preparedness As Another Fatality was Reported from Half Dome Cables in Yosemite

Six people die every week in National Parks according to National Park Service

Woodbridge, United States - September 12, 2019 /MarketersMedia/ —

A park visitor tragically died after slipping and falling to her death while scaling the steepest section of Half Dome in Yosemite National Park, officials said in a statement released on Friday.

29-year-old Danielle Burnett, from Lake Havasu City, Arizona, fell 500 feet at about 11:55 am Thursday into the steep, rocky terrain. She was deceased when park rangers found her. National Park Public Affairs Officer, Scott Gediman, said in a statement that the incident remains under investigation.

Over the years, Half Dome has claimed the lives of 13 individuals, with about 300 accidents reported in the area. Many of these accidents occur near the smooth granite portion of the cliff where Burnett fell., Yosemite recorded three significant incidents, including one fatality, weeks before the accident which claimed Burnett’s life. Park officers said in their statement that "although others may be engaging in the same activity, do not perceive popularity as an endorsement of your safety."

This new incident prompted park officials to strongly advise visitors to take extra precautionary measures and act responsibly during their excursion. When a fatality or other serious incident befalls a national park or other well-known area, adventurers and tourists tend to look to themselves, wondering if they are best prepared for any incident or scenario. Though no amount of gear would have helped Ms. Burnett in her tragic, untimely fall, hikers should take this catastrophe to reassess their adventure preparedness.

"I bought this First Aid Kit for my hiking backpack before taking a vacation to the mountains. It had mostly everything that I wanted, besides a tourniquet which I bought separately. The kit is very well organized, and the supplies seem to be high-quality. Thankfully I didn't have to use anything besides a band-aid from it while hiking, but it was nice to know that I had everything I needed in case if something were to happen! I highly recommend this small first aid kit to anyone looking for something to stuff in their hiking bag, or even just to use as a first aid kit in an apartment, home, or car!"

Protest likely to greet Trump fundraising trip in California

Sep 17, 2019

RIO RANCHO, N.M. — President Donald Trump is making a rare visit to California, a Democratic stronghold where he is expected to rake in millions of dollars during a series of fundraisers for his reelection effort that are almost certain to be met with jeering protests. Trump has routinely mocked California over its liberal culture, policies and politics. His visit Tuesday and Wednesday signals that despite the state's decidedly leftward swing in recent years there are still plenty of wealthy Republicans who support him. "There's not been a president in living history that is as unpopular in the state of...

Back to basics: Congress tries to keep government lights on

Sep 17, 2019

WASHINGTON — The good news is that it doesn't look like a bitterly polarized Washington will stumble into another government shutdown. But as Democrats controlling the House unveil a stopgap, government-wide spending bill to keep the lights on and pay the troops, there's scant evidence that power sharing in the Capitol will produce further legislative accomplishments anytime soon. The measure that is set for a vote this week would keep the government running through Nov. 21 and buy time for action and negotiations on $1.4 trillion in annual appropriations bills. Some items can't wait and will be included, like accelerated...

Fishermen should have been brought into the planning process from the start, Peter Hughes, of Atlantic Cape Fisheries, told U.S. House members from New Jersey and California who were holding a hearing at the Jersey Shore.

INDIANAPOLIS — Indiana's attorney general said Monday that he will work with his Illinois counterpart to investigate what he called the "grisly discovery" of more than 2,000 medically preserved fetal remains at the Illinois home of a late doctor who performed abortions in Indiana.
