On Tuesday, December 26, dispatchers at Glacier National park received a call from a commercial guide that a client had collapsed while on a guided snowshoe walk along Fish Creek Road.

Park rangers responded and continued CPR, already begun by the guide.

Three Rivers Ambulance and A.L.E.R.T. Air Ambulance also responded.

Efforts to resuscitate the visitor were not successful.

In a press release, park officials say that the man's death is believed to be due to natural causes.

The 64-year old man - whose name has not yet been released - was visiting the park from Miami, Florida, with family members.
