Colorado Man Dies After Falling Off Horse In Arizona

SUPAI, Ariz. (AP) – A Colorado man has died after the horse he was riding slipped on a trail in Havasu Canyon.

Coconino County sheriff’s spokesman Gerry Blair says the horse possibly slipped on a rock Tuesday, sending it and 46-year-old William Hagins falling 12 feet into a dry creek bed.

Blair says the horse had fallen on top of the Colorado Springs man then walked off. Emergency responders pronounced Hagins dead a short time later.

Blair says a hired guide had been leading Hagins, his wife, his 5-year-old child and others out of the village of Supai.

The village deep in a gorge off the Grand Canyon is home to the Havasupai Tribe. It is popular for its towering blue-green waterfalls and can be accessed only by helicopter or foot trail.
