TRANSYLVANIA COUNTY, N.C. -- Rescuers have found the body of a man who fell off a waterfall Sunday while hiking in Transylvania County, according to a report from WSPA-TV.
Bobby Cooper, chief of the Lake Toxaway Fire & Rescue, told WSPA crews found the 46-year-old's body Monday afternoon. But they were unable to recover his body, which was located between the rocks and water below an area adjacent to Big Falls in Pisgah National Forest, because of the difficult terrain.
Cooper said the man was from Asheville; his name was not released.
Crews are expected to continue the recovery mission Tuesday.
