Shenandoah National Park

National Park News

On Tuesday, January 31st, park dispatch received a call from police dispatch in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, regarding a suicidal man who was believed to be on the north end of Skyline Drive. The man reportedly made several cell phone calls to his wife in Pennsylvania stating that he'd just entered the park and planned to take an overdose of pills. Rangers responded and located the 28-year-old man at Signal Knob Overlook, six miles inside the park. He appeared to be under the influence and said that he'd ingested a large quantity of Tylenol PM pills. Warren County EMS transported him to a local hospital, where he spent three days in intensive care. The man had previously attempted suicide by pills and had an involuntary commitment order on file in Pennsylvania. The Warren County Sheriff's Office assisted in the response.
