CSU student dies in Rocky Mountain National Park

Corey Stewart, a sophomore natural resource recreation and tourism major, died yesterday while climbing the Lumpy Ridge range at Rocky Mountain National Park with two friends.

“Him and two friends were scaling the rock face in the Lumpy Ridge range and something went wrong. He fell about 50 feet, landed on his head and died right there,” said Greg Fairman, deputy coroner of the Larimer County Coroner Office.


Park rangers were notified of his fall at 12:30 p.m. Thursday. Rangers performed CPR for about an hour, but were unable to revive him.

“His injuries were unsurvivable,” Fairman said. “He was gone within a couple minutes.”

Stewart’s body was recovered this morning by helicopter. He was 22 years old and a New Jersey native. His two friends sustained no injuries.
