Update 1:40 p.m. Ohio State Parks officials are now releasing the name of the man who fell to his death into a waterfall within Ohio's Hocking Hills State Park.
Authorities say an 18-year-old man fell at least 40 feet to his death into a waterfall within southeast Ohio's Hocking Hills State Park.
Park rangers say the man wandered off a trail near Old Man's Cave Sunday morning, then slipped off a cliff and tumbled into the Lower Falls at the cave.
Ranger Mark Bryant with the Ohio Department of Natural Resources says that a fellow hiker pulled the man out of the water and began CPR.
But the 18-year-old was pronounced dead after emergency crews arrived on the scene.
The man's name was not immediately available.
