LOGAN, Ohio (AP) — Authorities say a 52-year-old man died when he fell from a cliff while rappelling in southeastern Ohio over the weekend.
The Ohio Department of Natural Resources said the man died in the fall Saturday in Hocking Hills State Park near Logan.
Agency spokeswoman Mark Bruce said man — who is from Centerville, in the Dayton area — fell from the top of a 130-foot cliff. His name has not been released.
Bruce said the man had accompanied a Boy Scout troop to the state park. He was rappelling at about 5 p.m. Saturday in the rock-climbing area of the park when he fell.
It was the second fatal fall in the park so far this year.
