In a Facebook post, “NES strongly recommends caution along these cliffs as this is not the first time this kind of incident has happened – sometimes with life-altering injuries. The banks along these cliffs can appear deceivingly shallow, but are nonetheless very steep and dangerous, and people are prone to slipping and falling. Also, these cliffs are often weak, especially near the bottom as erosion naturally occurs.” The Alaska State Troopers as well as Alaska Wildlife Troopers and Alaska State Park Rangers responded as well.last_img
