GARDINER — A New Jersey woman was killed when she fell 20 feet while rock climbing at the Trapps cliff area of the Mohonk Preserve Sunday afternoon.
State police said Stephanie Prezant, 22, of Haworth, N.J. was climbing with friends when she fell and struck her head. She was not wearing a helmet.
State police in Highland said that the Prezant's harness had come undone.
The woman was taken to St. Francis Hospital in Poughkeepsie where she was pronounced dead.
Rest in peace, Stephanie. So young.
I assume the state police in Highland don't really know that her harness came undone. Although anything's possible.
