CACHE COUNTY, Utah — A Utah man died this week after a snowmobiling accident in Logan Canyon.

Shortly after 4 p.m. on Wednesday, a father and son were snowmobiling in the Peter Sinks area. At one point, the son noticed his dad was no longer following him and he turned around to go find him, according to the Cache County Sheriff's Office.

The son then found his father pinned against a tree by the snowmobile, which appeared to have rolled.

The son performed CPR for short time, then left to find cell service so he could call 911. He then went back to attend to his dad. By the time rescuers arrived, he had died.

On Friday, the sheriff's office identified the victim as 63-year-old Almon Bate of Roy.

"We thank Search and Rescue, medics, and AirMed for their response to this tragic accident. We express our condolences to Mr. Bate’s family," the sheriff's office wrote in a Facebook post.
