KREX sports director Troy Lynch didn’t have a chance. He was just being a professional and doing his job. Until… they came.
On August 6, 2019, Lynch was reporting on the four Grand Junction Rockies that made the 2019 Pioneer/Northwest League All-Star Game in Boise, ID.
He made the fatal mistake of setting up by himself… in the ‘Kid Zone.’
About half way through his live-shot, a swarm of about 20 kids surrounded Troy and that’s where everything went downhill. Like a fish surrounded by hungry sharks, Troy tried to swim away and finish his live segment, but the pack of sugar-crazed hyenas ate him alive.
We will always remember Troy for his bravery and what he did for this country. This video is the last we saw of Troy in the broadcast. We will miss him dearly.
