Deaths on the California Channel Islands


More than 830 historic deaths have occurred on the islands — by accidents, drownings, murders and suicides, and by unexpected circumstances. They are listed island by island, and cross-referenced alphabetically throughout ISLAPEDIA. Odd fatal accidents include death by rollerskating, landslide, carbon monoxide poisoning, horse accident, falling down an elevator shaft, falling off a cliff, being hit by a car or accidentally shot. The most common cause of death on an island is by accidental drowning (boat accident, SCUBA diving, free diving, swimming and snorkeling), followed by fatal aircraft accidents (plane, helicopter and dirigible). Murders have been committed on Santa Catalina (5) and San Nicolas islands. Deaths by natural causes on Santa Catalina Island (City of Avalon) are not included.

29 people have died at three park islands since the creation of Channel Islands National Park in 1980, not including the 88 people killed on Alaska Air Flight 261 off Anacapa Island on January 31, 2000. 34 died in park waters off the coast of Santa Cruz Island on September 2, 1919 when the dive vessel Conception burned to the waterline while at anchor at Platt's Harbor.
