This woman and her two companions were luckier than others who died or hurt themselves this summer attempting to hike to an upper set of waterfalls in Eaton Canyon. The high number of rescues prompted officials to warn hikers about the dangers. Community members discussed whether there was any way to prevent deaths in the beautiful but deadly canyon.
