San Luis Obispo teen dies in Utah rock slide

A San Luis Obispo teen, on a camping trip with her family in Utah, died Tuesday in a rock slide.

San Juan County Sheriff's officials say Christina Allen, 19, was sitting on a large sand stone rock at the Kane Creek camping area near Canyonlands National Park.

Her mother, Debbie Allen, says the face of the rock suddenly broke away and began to slide, taking Christina with it.

Sheriff's officials say Christina fell approximately 20 feet and suffered severe internal and external injuries. She died at the scene.
