Man falls into Red River Gorge

FRENCHBURG, KY. (AP) - A Kentucky man has died after falling in the Indian Creek area of the Red River Gorge.

Menifee County Sheriff Rodney Coffey said late Saturday that the man's name was being withheld until his family was notified.

Coffey says local rescue agencies were called at 2:29 p.m. about a man who fell about 50 feet off a cliff. The man was camping with friends, who tried unsuccessfully to resuscitate him at the scene, Coffey said.

Coffey says the death appears to be an accident.
