Fatal Accident on Hood 8/16/2001


Recommended Posts

I don't have the details, but apparently a father and his two sons were out on the Eliot Glacier and the youngest son (15) was killed by a falling serac. The news reports didn't say if they were climbing, or even if they were on the Eliot actually, I just assumed that. But that he was killed when a refrigerator sized chunk of ice fell on him, crushing him to death. I translated that to mean a serac on the Eliot. I'll post again if I can get more information.
