A tragic incident occurred at Glacier National Park where a young woman from Pennsylvania lost her life after being swept over a waterfall, according to park officials. The 26-year-old fell into the water near St. Mary Falls around 5:20 p.m. on Sunday. St. Mary Falls, located in Glacier County, Montana, stands at approximately 35 feet tall.

After the woman fell into the water, she was carried over the waterfall and remained submerged for several minutes. Thankfully, bystanders at the park sprang into action, pulling her out of the water before first responders arrived. They performed CPR on the woman until park rangers and ambulance personnel took over. Despite their efforts, the Pennsylvania resident was pronounced dead around 7 p.m. that evening.

Glacier National Park authorities are currently conducting an investigation into the circumstances surrounding the woman’s tragic death. They have expressed their deepest condolences to her family and friends during this difficult time and have requested privacy for the grieving loved ones.
