From the Kane County Sheriff's Office: On June 23, 2020, Kane County Sheriff’s Office Dispatch was notified of a fall that occurred in the early afternoon at “Fat Man’s Misery”, (a popular slot canyon just outside of Zion National Park that empties into the East Fork of the Virgin River in Kane County). On one of the last few rappels of the canyon, a 37 year old male attempted to descend. While leaning back and testing the tension of the anchor, the existing webbing snapped in half. The male individual fell approximately 20 feet and landed on slick rock below. His injuries resulted in traumatic conditions to his whole body. A member of the group was able to hike out high enough out of the canyon to get cell phone service to contact help. Kane County Sheriff's Office, (KCSO), and Kane County Sheriff’s Office Search and Rescue, (KCSAR), responded to the East Zion area where they worked with Classical Medical helicopter and Utah Department of Public Safety helicopter crews in transporting personnel and gear to “Fat Man’s Misery”. Utah DPS helicopter utilized its hoist system in lifting and lowering KCSAR and medical personnel to the patient. Eventually the patient was safely extracted from the narrow canyon and transported to Dixie Regional Medical Center. Kane County Sheriff’s Office sends out a huge thank you to Classic Air Medical, Utah DPS Aviation, and our many KCSAR volunteers that take time out of their busy lives to help others.
