A helicopter was then called out to the area, but it was unable to reach the woman because of the steep, narrow canyon walls.
“Park Medics were able to reach the Patient shortly before she succumbed to her injuries,” read a press release Sunday evening from Zion National Park.
The incident remains under investigation.
