A man died while hiking a trail in Glacier National Park earlier this week, according to the National Park Service.
In a release, the Park Service said that around 4:45 p.m. on Monday, GNP employees received a report about a man who collapsed and was unresponsive on the Siyeh Pass trail, around one mile from the trailhead at Siyeh Bend.
Employees responded from Going-to-the-Sun Road on foot. Other hikers, including the man’s stepson, were performing CPR when staff arrived. Rangers used a defibrillator to attempt to resuscitate the man, but were unsuccessful.
The 43-year-old man from Waupun, Wisconsin was hiking with his family. The Glacier County Coroner indicated the death appeared to be due to natural causes.
