The Coalition of American Canyoneers (CAC) announces the creation of the International Canyon Accident Database (ICAD) Canyoning has been growing in popularity for many years worldwide. Participants include recreational canyoneers, who spend much of their free time exploring canyons, as well as tourists who utilize professional guide services. Unsurprisingly, minor injuries such as a sprained ankle often occur. However, it is unfortunate that serious, sometimes fatal accidents also occur. The International Canyon Accident Database was created to better document and understand the causes of canyon related accidents, so they might be avoided in the future. The ICAD is seeking detailed narratives, personal analysis and advice from individuals involved in canyon accidents. In addition to an individual’s account, supporting material such as scene pictures, media reports, and diagrams will be helpful. Please submit reports on the ICAD website. The CAC is in the process of building a dedicated website for ICAD. Once this site is operational, reports from the ICAD will be published there in English. The reports will be searchable and free to the public. In addition, the CAC will periodically publish selections from the database via electronic newsletter, our website and social media. While waiting for the ICAD website to be fully functional, you are invited to read a few examples of canyon accident reports. The internet address is: https://www.canyonaccident.org. Also, please join the Coalition of American Canyoneers. Your membership makes a difference – and there is no cost to join: https://www.americancanyoneers.org/join-now/.
