. Cause Of Death Determined For California Family That Mysteriously Died On Hike « JO LEE MAGAZINE

HUFF POST – A family of three that died along with their dog while on a hike in California’s Sierra National Forest in August died from “heat-related issues,” Mariposa County Sheriff Jeremy Briese said Thursday. The deaths of John Gerrish, Ellen Chung, their 1-year-old daughter, Miju, and their dog puzzled authorities, who initially responded by closing recreation sites and trails in the area due to “unknown hazards.” Briese noted that temperatures on the trail the family followed reached between 107 and 109 degrees the day of their hike, through at-times steep terrain. The family had one 85-ounce water container on them.
