A snowmobiler was killed over the weekend after falling from a cliff in the Sierra. The victim has yet to be identified by officials.

Three snowmobilers were riding in the Frog Lake area of Nevada County when officials received word of an avalanche in the area. Upon arrivals, the rescue team quickly learned that the avalanche had not occurred and one of the snowmobilers had fallen off a large cliff. CPR was attempted, however the subject succumbed to his injuries and was pronounced deceased at the scene. The subject, a male adult, was airlifted from the scene by a Navy helicopter and taken to Renown Hospital.

Authorities have yet to announce the circumstances surrounding the tragic incident.

Each year, about 200 people die and 14,000 are injured in snowmobile accidents in North America, according to the National Library of Medicine. Earlier this winter, a snowmobiler narrowly survived an avalanche in the nearby Little Truckee Summit region.
