Fifty-three-year-old Barry Goldstein was traveling with a group of family and friends when witnesses said rocks he was standing on near the edge gave way. Mr. Goldstein's daughter reportedly was standing near him when he fell yesterday.
"All I know is he slipped on a rock or something and momentum grabbed him as he started to fall and plummeted or fell off," the man's sister, Joni Goldstein, said in a comment to a previous post about a woman who died in a fall from Angel's Landing last August.
"I'm so confused and sad. We live in St. Louis and he was there for a wedding tomorrow (Saturday) and the family all were together. I hope he wasn't scared and wondered if he lost consciousness before he hit the ground."
