A Successful Rescue At Bridal Veil Falls

In 1993, Memorial Day was a day
That Cody McQuillan would never forget
For the rest of his life
Thanks to a hiking accident at Bridal Veil Falls in Provo
That left him with a fractured hip
As well as head and neck injuries
(None of which were serious, thank goodness)
Accompanied with scrapes, cuts, and bruises;
After being airlifted to the Utah Valley Regional Medical Center,
The nineteen-year-old West Jordan High School graduate
Was- after having his wounds taken care of-
Discharged from the hospital that evening.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

Years ago, I saw an episode of the incident on 'Rescue 911'. In this reenactment, Cody was played by stunt actor Joe Box (I later learned that the real Cody was eating a snowcone in the shade while watching the accident reconstruction with binocular-toting spectators): I remember that a young brunette named Renee (I don't recall her maiden name and age; that is exactly what I want to know) was Mr. McQuillan's girlfriend at the time of the accident (they have now apparently gone their separate ways) and that she was crying when she was telling the story of the accident.
