Man Dies From Gondola Fall

A man riding on the Silver Mountain gondolas in Kellogg this weekend apparently fell to his death, authorities

said today.

The victim, identified only as 26-year-old, reportedly had climbed out a window of the gondola car he was in despite being warned repeatedly by a companion to get back inside, according to the Shoshone County Sheriff’s Office. He fell about 85 feet into steep, rocky terrain about 8:30 p.m. Saturday.  More here.  (SR Photo/ Jesse Tinsley)
