Hiker Falls to His Death in Sedona
A man fell to his death while hiking in Sedona. On Thursday afternoon Yavapai County Sheriff's deputies performed a welfare check call for a man who had not shown up to work. The man’s roommate said he was an avid hiker and would often hike the Cathedral Rock and Bell Rock Trails. Deputies later located his vehicle at the Bell Rock parking lot but was not able to reach him by cell phone. YCSO pinged the man’s phone, showing he was in the area. The YCSO Back Country Search and Rescue Unit was deployed the next day and found the missing man, who slipped and fell to his death. The 38 year old man, whose name is not being released, was recovered so he can be returned to his family.
