ZION NATIONAL PARK — Park officials say a man said he had shortness of breath as he was hiking West Rim Trail at the Angels Landing access point.

He collapsed, and a ranger then park EMTs did CPR but could not revive him.

While that was happening, a different park medic and rescue team was called out to help a man on another trail who had chest pain and difficulty breathing. He was flown to the hospital.

Crews also spent the night before with a man who hurt his ankle.

Zion national park is urging visitors to be careful while hiking in this high heat that they may not be used to.
