Hiker falls to death in Red River Gorge

WAVE3 TV in Louisville is reporting that a hiker fell to his death in Red River Gorge this past weekend. State police say 44-year-old John W. Pacey of Waynesville, Ohio was found near the Chimney Top Road area late Friday night.

Investigators say Pacey was walking a narrow trail with friends when he lost his balance and fell about 150 feet down an embankment.

Emergency responders declared the Waynesville, Ohio, resident dead at the scene of the accident.

The accident remains under investigation.

Pacey is the second Ohio man to die in the Gorge this year. Ronald J. Trick, of Powell, Ohio, fell to his death in February in a similar accident.
