In 2017, while summiting the Middle Teton, at 11,000 feet above the ground, the rocks above Cassandra began to shift and fall. Cassandra tried to take cover out of the fall zone, but unfortunately was knocked unconscious and covered by a boulder. This accident resulted in a traumatic brain injury alongside a visual impairment and other injuries.
