14 Year Old Minnesota Girls Falls to Death Hiking On Family Vacation

A northwestern Minnesota family’s 14-year-old fell during a hike and died of her injuries.

Chloe Conn of Detroit Lakes was with her parents and older brother at Lake Tahoe, admiring the view from a boulder when she slipped and fell about 50 feet, according to the Sacramento Bee.

The accident happened Wednesday in northern California’s Sierra Nevada mountains on a trail that leads down to the lake.

There were life-saving efforts at the scene when first responders arrived. But she died later at a hospital.

The family was in Emerald Bay State Park on the Vikingsholm Trail. It’s a one mile trail, but it drops 400 feet in elevation.
