Tourist falls 182 meters in zipline accident

A tourist from California was allegedly injured when a portion of the canopy at Nogalito Eco Park failed last Thursday. The victim fell 182 meters (600 feet) down into the canopy where she was suspended in trees by her zipline vest, according Manuel Orosco, a family friend of the victim.

The incident occurred in the seventh section of the canopy tour known as Descanso. The Nogalito Eco Park has 11 lines with a maximum height of 660 feet.

Manuel Orosco stated the victim was unable to receive medical treatment in Puerto Vallarta without insurance so she immediately returned to California . . .
