Fatal Fall!!
Monday, June 19, 2006; Posted: 1:29 a.m. EDT (05:29 GMT)


A newspaper identified the victim as Deb Chamberlin, 52, of Rockford, Michigan.


YELLOWSTONE NATIONAL PARK, Wyoming (AP) -- A woman lost her footing after stepping over a retaining wall to take a photograph and went over a cliff, falling 500 feet to her death in a canyon, Yellowstone National Park officials said.

The 52-year-old woman was visiting the park with her husband and two children.

Her husband flagged down a passing motorist, who called 911 after the Saturday morning accident at an overlook along the Yellowstone River, park officials said.

A ranger rappelled down the canyon wall to reach the woman, but she was dead at the scene.

In Michigan, The Grand Rapids Press on Sunday identified the woman as Deb Chamberlin, 52, of Rockford, vice president of the school board in the west Michigan community.

"It's hard for me to articulate right now because I'm still in shock," said Rockford Superintendent Mike Shibler, who said he spoke to Chamberlin's husband, Gary.

It was the second fatal accident in Yellowstone this year. In February, a woman was killed in a snowmobile accident.

Gravity works. This is a sad story, but there IS a moral:

THE KEY WORDS WERE 'RETAINING WALL'

Crazy stuff.

I do feel bad for the family, it must have been horrible. I'd hate to think that something like that would ever happen to someone on this board, via weather. However, weather doesn't come with a warning label.

They should remove warning lables from stuff and let nature take it's course...(that was a joke)...

It's bad when someone has to point out that they are making a joke...my jokes have warning labels...
