BRIGHAM CITY - A 19-year-old woman who died in a fall while hiking in Willard Canyon Saturday has been identified Laney Peacock of Brigham City.
Box Elder County Sheriff's Chief Deputy Kevin Potter says the woman was hiking with a friend Saturday afternoon when the pair decided to climb up a sheer rock wall without the proper equipment. As the woman started to climb back down, authorities say she slipped and fell about 30 feet, hitting a rocky area, then sliding another 100 yards.
Authorities say her friend went for help, but when emergency crews reached the scene, the woman was dead.
A helicopter was used to hoist Peacock's body out of the canyon.
