WEST GLACIER, Mont. [July 28, 2020] – On Monday, July 27 at 4:45 pm Glacier National Park received a report that a man had collapsed and was unresponsive on the Siyeh Pass trail, approximately one mile from the trailhead at Siyeh Bend.

Glacier National Park employees responded from Going-to-the-Sun Road on foot. Other hikers, including the man’s stepson, were performing CPR when National Park Service staff arrived. Rangers also used an automatic external defibrillator (AED) to attempt to resuscitate the victim, but these efforts were unsuccessful.


The 43-year-old man from Waupun, Wisconsin was hiking with his family.

The Glacier County Coroner indicates the death appears to be due to natural causes.
