Family Outing Ends in Tragedy as Guy Hiking in Arches National Park Collapses and Die

On Friday, a man died while hiking through Arches National Park in Moab, Utah, after collapsing and becoming “unresponsive” on the trail. Tragically, the 71-year-old man from Massachusetts was hiking with his wife and son, according to the Grand County Sheriff’s Department. First responders from multiple organizations, including the National Park Service and the sheriff’s office, rushed to the scene and attempted CPR on the man but were unable to prevent his untimely death.
