Family of Hikers - Part 5

Not sure why the True Crime / Sunshine Sachs troll / Spazz troll and his sock puppets got our prior thread closed, it had nothing to do with Markle or a former boyband.

Let's carry on here. Still waiting for the tox screens and final cause of death.

Prior thread linked.

This interesting article was posted toward the end of the prior thread. Shame the Gerrish Chungs do not appear to have read it. Stay safe out there folks.

Part 4 does not have the "thread closed" designation that it did earlier, so carry on there. Odd.

They're now saying the family very likely died from a lightning strike.

Do you have a link, R3?

The NYT wrote a piece that seemed sourced from online chat boards, it was then picked up by other outlets. LE and more official sources had not commented to my knowledge. Have you seen otherwise?

Actually dehydration and hyperthermia.

In temps of 109, especially while climbing an extremely steep trail, their core temps went over 105. Unless airlifted out, packed in ice, it was game over and there is only about 30 minutes to turn things around at that point.

Heat killed them

If you watch the vid of the helicopter that lifted them out on Wed morning, you can see the heat waves rising from Devil's Gulch, a very deep canyon. It was hotter on Sunday. SAR dogs had to be pulled due to burning paws on the trail, again at cooler temps. Poor Oski.

That poor infant. The parents looked strained in the 1 year birthday photos and the kid looked pretty solemn. Seemed like a horrific day to cap an unhappy year.

Find safer ways to chase dopamine if you choose to become a parent and/or a pet owner.

[quote]45-year-old Jonathan Gerrish mapped out Hite Cove Trail on an app on his phone, but the program did not show the elevation of the trail. A witness told investigators they saw the family's truck going toward the trail on August 15, around 8 am. The temperature at that time was 75 degrees at an elevation of about 3,800 feet. Authorities say they had been carrying one 85-ounce water container. It was empty, and they had no other water with them.

So they set out not knowing the trail was steep, and with one 85 oz. water bottle for two adults (and a dog)? They did have some baby formula for the 1-year old but WHY drag a baby along? Dumbasses.

Improper clothing , no hats, improper shoes, left one hour later than recommended for the hot summer months. No water bowl for that loyal, helpless little dog, no protection for his tender paw pads. Left no instructions for anyone to check on them if they were late coming home, and of course the shockingly inadequate amount of water, which for that hike was not enough for even ONE person. Stupid fucking baby killers. It that bitch had lived, either of them, they would have most likely been charged with criminal child endangerment at the LEAST. ( If they had survived ) Obviously they were the only two people who mattered in their minds and even helpless little ones had to fit into their lifestyle, no matter the discomfort and danger to them. What selfish rotten cunts. I hope Oski and Miju went quickly. Brutal way to die.

Just wanted to add that the SLT will forever be a haunted, dystopian hell scape.
