This tragedy is truly a case of terrible luck for this family being in the wrong place at the wrong time.

I frequently see people playing in the waterfalls along that stretch of road either side of the East Tunnel.
This accident ought to be a reminder that playing along that stretch of rock wall isn't a good idea.

Driving a red bus one rainy day several years ago and had to stop just east of the tunnel with rocks falling. Scary situation.

My heart aches for this family. Such a random tragedy. Can't imagine the pain of losing a daughter like that.

It is a very sad event and my prayers are with the family and all those involved. You just never know when something like this can happen. I hope that the family can take comfort in thinking of the wonderful memories of their daughter's life.
