Man dies in fall at Grandfather Mountain
Officials say a man is dead after a fall at Grandfather Mountain in North Carolina.
The Grandfather Mountain Stewardship Foundation says a missing person report was made around 10 a.m. Sunday for a man who was last seen at an overlook at the park about 110 miles northwest of Charlotte.
Officials say after a search, crews found a man dead at the base of a cliff and recovered his body.
According to the foundation, the Avery County Sheriff’s Office said it appears to be an accidental fall.
While nothing indicates anything other than an accident, the foundation says investigations are ongoing.
