Hiker Fires Gunshot In Park After Narrowly Missing 200-Pound Boulder

Posted: Updated:
WEST GLACIER -

After just barely missing the full force of a 200-pound boulder in Glacier National Park, a father gets attention for his son with gunfire.

On Sunday, the pair from Alabama were hiking along the Continental Divide area in the Siyeh area. As they climbed down from Mount Siyeh, a huge rock loosened and injured the 21-year-old causing him to fall about 200 feet. The father yelled and shot his gun to get help. Nearby hikers heard him and and helped them get to park personnel.

Two Bear Air helicoptered them to West Glacier where they were picked up by Three Rivers Ambulance and taken to North Valley Hospital in Whitefish.

While people can bring guns into the park, it is against the law to discharge a firearm in Glacier National Park.
