May 10, 2010 [CINP]: “A 22-year-old man, a Goleta CA resident, died on Saturday afternoon May 8, 2010, after a 60-foot fall off the cliffs at Potato Harbor on Santa Cruz Island within Channel Islands National Park. The fall victim, Trevor Brent Correia, a student from Santa Barbara City College, landed on a ledge situated 60 feet below the top of the cliff and well over 200 feet above Potato Harbor on the northeast end of Santa Cruz Island. National Park Ranger Randy Nelson responded after being notified at about 2:30 p.m. by one of the victim's friends. Nelson and two other park employees were able to safely descend the slope at Potato Harbor where they found the two bystanders assisting Correia. Upon arrival Ranger Nelson found Correia unconscious, unresponsive, and with labored breathing. Initial emergency medical treatment and monitoring continued until a Ventura County Sheriff Search and Rescue helicopter arrived with paramedic response. Shortly following their arrival, Correia's condition worsened and CPR was initiated. Due to the steep nature of the cliff the victim was airlifted from the ledge to the rescue helicopter. At about 4:30 p.m. Correia was transported by the Ventura County rescue helicopter to St. John's Hospital in Oxnard, CA, where he was pronounced dead upon arrival. The Ventura County Medical Examiner has determined the cause of death as an accident. Use of alcohol is being investigated as a contributing factor in this accident. At the time of the accident Correia was on a day visit to Santa Cruz Island, hiking with seven friends including is girlfriend, four other females and one male. Several of his companions witnessed his fall. The group returned from the island late Saturday afternoon and later met with National Park Service rangers and the Ventura County Medical Examiner where they were informed of their friend's fate. Correia's family, who live in San Diego County, were also notified about the tragedy.”

May 10, 2010 [VS]: “The 21-year-old hiker who died this weekend after a fall from a cliff on Santa Cruz Island was the brother of a San Diego Padres pitcher, authorities said today. Trevor Brent Correia, of Santa Barbara, fell to a ledge about 60 feet down a cliff at Potato Harbor at the island Saturday afternoon, Channel Islands National Park officials said in a prepared statement. Correia was pronounced dead several hours later at a local hospital. Trevor Correia was the brother of San Diego Padres pitcher Kevin Correia, said Warren Miller, communications director for the Padres. The 21-year-old man's fall was reported by one of his friends about 2:30 p.m. Saturday, according to a statement from the park service. A park ranger found Correia unconscious but breathing on a ledge over 200 feet above the harbor, officials said. Emergency responders administered CPR after his conditions worsened. Correia was airlifted by the Ventura County Sheriff's helicopter to St. John's Regional Medical Center in Oxnard. He was pronounced dead when he arrived at the hospital about 4:30 p.m., park service officials said. A student at Santa Barbara City College, Correia was hiking with seven friends when he fell from the cliff, officials said. His girlfriend was among the friends on the hike. Several friends witnessed the fall, officials said. After an autopsy on Sunday, the Ventura County Medical Examiner's office determined Correia died from blunt force chest injuries and ruled his death an accident, officials said. Advertisement Authorities are looking into possible alcohol use as a contributing factor in the accident, according to the park service statement. Santa Cruz Island, the largest of the Channel Islands, is about 20 miles off Ventura. Most of it is owned by the nonprofit group Nature Conservancy; the rest is part of the National Park Service. One of the popular day hiking trails on the park service property skirts tall cliffs and ends at Potato Harbor. Saturday's death follows another fatality on the island last year, when Tommy Pruner, 49, of Orange County died during a long hike on a particularly hot October day. Padres pitcher Kevin Correia traveled from Houston to California Sunday morning following his brother's death, the Associated Press reported. He was scratched from his scheduled start against the Houston Astros on Sunday.”

May 10, 2010 [SDUT]: “Trevor Brent Correia, the younger brother of Padres pitcher Kevin Correia, died Saturday in a fall from a cliff on Santa Cruz Island off the Santa Barbara coastline. Kevin Correia left the Padres in Houston early Sunday to fly home to be with his family after learning of the death of his 22-year-old brother. A native of San Diego who was attending Santa Barbara City College, Trevor Correia was hiking with seven friends, including his girlfriend, along a popular trail that skirts the edge of the island over tall cliffs. Trevor Correia fell approximately 60 feet, landing on a ledge some 200 feet above the water of Potato Harbor. A park ranger and two friends found Trevor unresponsive, unconscious and barely breathing on the ledge. CPR was administered and Trevor was airlifted to St. John’s Regional Medical Center in Oxnard where he was pronounced dead at approximately 4:30 p.m. — two hours after the fall. His parents were contacted Saturday evening and the Padres pitcher was reached at Minute Maid Park in Houston on Saturday night. Although he was scheduled to start Sunday’s game, he departed Houston early that morning to be with his family. Correia is not scheduled to pitch again until Saturday night against the Dodgers at Petco Park. Major League Baseball has a bereavement leave policy. No services have been announced for Trevor Correia. The Ventura County Medical Examiner’s Office ruled his death an accident and are studying the possibility of alcohol being a contributing factor.”
