National Park News

On Sunday, June 10th, learned that a suicidal woman was parked in the Canyon Rim parking lot near the New River Gorge Bridge. The 40-year-old Virginia woman had called a suicide hotline in her home state. Counselors were able to determine her location and called the Fayette County 911 center. Rangers Frank Sellers and Randy Fisher were dispatched and located the woman in the parking lot, still sitting in her car. They were able to convince her to seek help and evaluation. She was transferred to a local hospital by Jan Care Ambulance and placed under a psychiatric evaluation hold. Family members arrived early on Monday morning and she was released to their care.
