Yellowstone Falling Tree Kills Taiwanese Tourist

A Taiwanese tourist who was hiking the Fairy Falls trail in Yellowstone National Park along with a group of hikers got killed by a falling tree on Monday afternoon.

The falling pine tree hit the international visitor on the head when he left his trail and went towards the slope of the tree in order to get a better view of Grand Prismatic Spring.

The visitors who witnessed the falling tree incident immediately went back and told the park employees about the unfortunate incident.

The Yellowstone security moved the severely injured tourist to the trailhead to send him to the hospital via a medical aid helicopter.

However, the victim was declared dead at the scene as the helicopter couldn’t reach the spot immediately due to bad weather conditions. The name of the killed tourist is not yet revealed.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
