LOGAN, Ohio (AP) — A state spokesman says a man was killed and a woman seriously injured in separate falls at southern Ohio's Hocking Hills State Park.

An Ohio Department of Natural Resources spokesman said Sunday that a 19-year-old Columbus man fell about 60 feet from a cliff Saturday. Spokesman Matt Eiselstein says the man left the marked trail to climb a rock face while hiking with friends. He couldn't confirm the man's name.

Eiselstein say a 23-year-old Chillicothe-area woman was injured Saturday at another site in the park when she and her boyfriend left the trail. Eiselstein says the woman fell about 100 feet after slipping on the edge of a cliff and was taken to a Columbus hospital.

He did not know her name and couldn't comment on her condition Sunday.
