This is the total that I came up with. Could be off a bit. You can keep up to date and read details if you scroll down and look to the right column marked "lost and injured hikers". Be safe out there and always hikesafe!

Died: 6
2 - fell to there death from a ledge/cliff
4 - heart attack or other medical condition
