In memory of Karen Feher
Report this Post

It's time to separate the thread about the accident at the New.

"A Midlothian woman died after falling about 65 feet in a rock-climbing accident Saturday in West Virginia, authorities said yesterday.

Karen Feher, 33, had reached the top of a climb in the Kaymoor Buttress area of New River Gorge National River when she fell about 4:30 p.m., said New River Gorge acting chief ranger Chuck Noll.

Feher had secured herself to anchors at the top of a sandstone cliff just before she fell, Noll said. "The fall was caused when a piece of equipment failed due to a rigging error," he said. "



Karen,

I didn't know you, but we share a passion for our children and rock climbing. Rest in Peace.

Gail

My Condolences to Karen's family, her children Ellianna Nicole and Aaron Joseph and her friends.
