CHAFFEE COUNTY - A rockslide has killed five people near Mt. Princeton in Chaffee County.
Five to seven people were hiking one mile up from the Agnes Vaille Falls trail head Monday morning when they were caught in the rockslide, according to the Chaffee County Sheriff's Office.
A 13-year-old girl was airlifted to Children's Hospital. Chaffee County Sheriff W. Peter Palmer said all victims are accounted for.
Chaffee County deputies, the Chaffee County EMS, Pitkin County Sheriff's Office, Colorado State Patrol, engineers, geology experts and Chaffee County Fire are all on scene to help with rescue efforts.
Officials say the site of slide is very unsafe at the moment, and no one is allowed up other than rescue workers. Sheriff Palmer said rescue operations will last into the night.
He said some of the boulders that fell on the hikers are as large as cars.
The cause of the slide is unknown at this time.
The names, ages and hometowns of the victims haven't been released.
