A media release from the park said rangers received a report on Friday afternoon that several pedestrians had “swept their feet” from a flash flood in the Narrows near the Temple of Sinawa.
“Park Rangers and other members of the Zion Search and Rescue team responded quickly to the incident and we are continuing our efforts,” park superintendent Jeff Bradybag said.
The release said rangers found an injured passenger who had been swept several hundred yards downstream. The man was taken to the hospital for treatment.
Rangers also interviewed groups of visitors exiting the Narrows and Riverside Walk to ensure they were not missing anyone, the release said. The officials later came to know that Agnihotri had to leave ahead of time due to the narrow journey.
The affected areas have been closed for public access.
