Man dies of fall while watching Oregon sunrise

The Associated Press

ESTACADA, Ore. — A man fell to his death early Thursday from a cliff on a Clackamas County mountain that’s popular for watching the sunrise.

The Oregonian reports friends told search and rescue workers they were using flashlights at a viewpoint atop Goat Mountain about 3 a.m. but couldn’t find the man.

Fire Lt. Clint Shaver says the man fell from a 230-foot cliff. The mountain itself rises 4,200 feet.

The man was not immediately identified.
