Amber Bellows falls


A Utah newlywed who went BASE jumping in Zion National Park with her husband of two weeks was killed when her parachute failed to open properly and she plunged to her death, a park official said Monday.

Amber Bellows, 28, plummeted about 2,000 feet during a jump off of Mount Kinesava on Saturday, the National Parks Service. Her new husband told authorities he noticed there was trouble with her parachute and he jumped after his wife to try to save her, but was unable to reach her.

After landing, Clayton Butler, 29, hiked for more than two hours before reaching park officials at sundown to notify them of the incident. Search crews using a helicopter recovered Bellow’s body on Sunday in a rugged area of the mountain’s base, park spokeswoman Aly Baltrus said.

The couple were experienced with BASE jumping, a form of skydiving where a person free-falls off a fixed surface before activating a parachute, the Parks Service said. The term BASE stands for buildings, antennas, spans and earth.

Bellows’ death was the first BASE jumping fatality at Zion National Park. Parachuting of any kind is illegal at the park.
