Very sad.

One of his hiking partners, a 45-year-old woman from Milpitas, CA, grabbed him as he lost his balance and also fell, but she was able to self-arrest approximately 30-feet down. ... Later, she was transported by air to a hospital in Reno, NV, where she underwent surgery.


Also sad... at least she tried.
