Sad To Hear
Jeffry Frye ,who fell in the Smokies in November, died of his injuries.

Jeremy Frye, 25, of Knoxville fell approximately 25-30 feet from the top of Grotto Falls on Nov. 8, a popular hiking destination along Trillium Gap Trail a few miles south of Gatlinburg, Tenn.

He suffered apparent leg, back and head injuries in the mishap. Park rangers responded to the scene and transported the victim by wheeled litter about 1.5 miles to the Trillium Gap Trailhead. He was then transferred to Gatlinburg Ambulance and subsequently was flown by LIFESTAR to The University of Tennessee Hospital in Knoxville.

My condolences to his friends and family.
