Last month the Oregon Ducks football family was hit with some sad news after TE Spencer Webb passed away after falling and hitting his head at Triangle Lake in Oregon.
Oregon Ducks tight end Spencer Webb died on Wednesday after he fell and suffered a head injury while visiting western Oregon’s Triangle Lake, authorities said. Webb, 22, was preparing to enter his fifth season at the university.
Authorities responded to the incident at Triangle Lake around 2:30 p.m. local time on Wednesday, according to the sheriff’s office, after receiving reports that someone was hurt near the area’s rock slides. Rock slides are sloped rock formations that Triangle Lake visitors use as “natural water slides,” which are surrounded by waterfalls and spaces for swimming.
Once they arrived, deputies said they discovered Webb unconscious in a spot “approximately 100 yards down a steep trail” and learned from others at the scene that he had been “recreating in the area” before falling and hitting his head. Webb could not be revived.
Now, a month later, his girlfriend Kelly Kay has announced that she is expecting their baby.
