Hiker who disappeared in flash flooding at Zion National Park is found dead

August 24, 2022

The body of a hiker who vanished during a flash flood in Utah’s Zion National Park last week was found Monday, officials said Tuesday.

Jetal Agnihotri was among multiple hikers who were swept off their feet by flash flooding reported around 2:15 p.m. Friday — about 45 minutes after the National Weather Service issued a flash flood warning. Her body was found in the Virgin River near Court of the Patriarchs, a group of sandstone cliffs in a southeast section of the park. nbc
