8-Year-Old Who Died Near Hanging Lake Identified

The eight-year-old boy who died in a hiking accident earlier this week at Hanging Lake near Glenwood Springs has been identified.  An autopsy determined that Noah Ragon of Highland Ranch, died due to an accidental blunt force injury to his head. While Ragon was initially thought to have slipped and hit his head on a rock, investigators are still trying to determine if this was the case, or if something else, like a falling rock, caused the death.  Anyone who was in the area when the accident occurred and may have information on the incident is asked to contact the Garfield County Coroners office at 319-0311.
