CUMBERLAND, Md. (AP) — Police say a Cumberland man died in a 180-foot fall from a cliff known locally as Lover’s Leap.
The Allegany County Sheriff’s Office says Thaddeus Carolan, 34, died Thursday.
Investigators say it appears to have been an accidental fall.
They say a woman who was with him reported the incident shortly after 11 a.m. Thursday.
Two members of a rescue team rappelled down the cliff side to retrieve the body.
A Maryland State Police helicopter crew assisted in the recovery.
