Father, Son Die in Fall at Yellowstone


    Yellowstone National Park officials are trying to figure out how a man and his son fell to their deaths from the Gardner River High Bridge. Fifty-year-old Drew Webster Speedie and 13-year-old Brent Quinn Speedie died on September 16th when they fell about 200 feet from the bridge to the river corridor below sometime between 9:30 a.m. and noon that day.
    The bridge is located about one-mile from Mammoth Hot Springs on the Mammoth-to-Tower Junction Road. Rangers were told the two had gone to the bridge to take a picture but failed to return.
