More details about the incident were released Thursday morning. On Jan. 13, police responded to the scene of a fatality near Interstate 35W and Interstate 38A, approximately three miles away, which involved a skier who had fallen over a cliff.

On that call, Lt. Brian McAllister of the department’s aviation division said the incident had taken place at about 9:45 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 13.

The skier had been skiing on Skid Mountain near the north end of the park when he fell on a ledge, McAllister said.

“When we arrived on scene that night, the man on the skid바카라사이트 had also collapsed and was p더킹카지노ronounced deceased,” McAllister said in a news release. “There were no other victims.”

All four lives were recovered on the mountain.

McAllister said investigators with the park and with the Department of Public Safety and Austin Fire and EMS, which responded, identified the skier as 37-year-old Ryan Kline of Austin, Texas, who had skied the popular trailhead.

During the investigation, Austin police and investigators with the department’s Aviation Division began interviewing witnesses who had spoken with the victim. All four of those interviewed, including Kline, have been identified by name in the news release. The deceased man’s name was also published in the release.

McAllister did not release the names of the victims during the press conference Thursday.

The skier had been skiing at least once a week.

After the fatality, Austin police also continued an investigation into another fatality.

On Jan. 20, at about 9:15 p.m., police responded to the area off I-35A, east of Exit 10C, near the park entrance. The victim was hiking at the foot of the South Mountain snowbank about 30 feet from the trailhead.

Police did not release any details, but McAllister said the skier lost control of the skis, which tipped over onto a cliff and were carried hundreds of yards by the wind, McAllister said.

Kline was pronounced dead at the scene by ambulance personnel.
