At around noon today, a 17-year old from Irvington, NY fell from the upper pool of Hamilton Falls in Jamaica. According to Vermont State Police, Tyler Rosenberg was crossing the uppermost pool of the falls when he slipped and slid down about 100 feet to the middle pool injuring his head in the fall.

Bystanders at the middle pool immediately started resuscitation and Rosenberg regained a pulse and began breathing. Rosenberg was taken out of the wooded area and flown by helicopter to Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center. This evening, Dartmouth Hitchcock informed state police that Rosenberg had died at 5:13 p.m.

A Vermont State Park sign at the scene warns that more than 12 people have died at the falls and warns of slippery rocks.
