Lynchburg, VA - Liberty University officials tell us, Faith Helbig was hiking Monday evening with a group of five other Liberty University students. They say she was a freshman from New Jersey. We are told the other five students have all met with pastors and counselors since the accident. School officials say they are devastated over the news.

"You hurt for families who experience a tragedy like this. And it is true, we are a very big family but when one member hurts, we all hurt. We want to be there for each other and that's just what we're doing," said Mark Hine, LU Senior VP for Student Affairs.

Officials say many students hike Crabtree Falls and they cannot stress enough that they need to stay on the trail.
