Man dies after falling from North Carolina waterfall

A man has died after falling about 70 feet from a waterfall in western North Carolina.

McDowell County Emergency Services director William Kehler told WYFF-TV on Sunday the man fell off Upper Catawba Falls in Pisgah National Forest.

Kehler says the man was airlifted to an Asheville hospital Saturday evening.

The man has not been identified.

Kehler says he’s unsure if “the mens” was alone or with a group.

U.S. Forest Service officials are investigating.
