Benito Baeza

SALT LAKE CITY, Utah (AP)- Salt Lake City woman died attempting a parachute jump near Zion National Park when her parachute failed to open. Amber Bellows fell about 2,000 feet to the ground Saturday afternoon. The 28-year-old had been attempting the jump from Mount Kinesava, in the southern part of the park famous for its soaring red rock formations. Bellows hiked to the top of the mountain Saturday morning with her husband, 29-year-old Clayton Butler. The Salt Lake City couple had married just two weeks before. Officials began a helicopter search on Sunday morning and found Bellows’ body by 10 a.m. Park officials said Bellows had been an experienced BASE jumper. BASE jumping is banned in Zion, and this is the first time a jumper has died.
