A Utah man is lucky to be alive after falling more than 100 feet while rock climbing in Zion National Park.
Eric Schriever and his friend were climbing in the park Tuesday when Eric lost control during a decent. His friend was video taping at the time and caught the 100 foot fall on tape.
Eric hit his head on the rocks several times, but he was wearing a helmet and was conscious when he hit the bottom.
"I hit the bottom and I realized I was okay," he said. "Completely humbled, because I realized that I had just experienced a miracle, because there's no way I should be here today."
Eric did suffer burns to his hands from trying to grab the rope and slow his fall.
I have no idea what canyon he was in, but there is a video on the link. One of our more Zion-savvy members can ID the canyon.
