Fire official: Visitor dies in fall from S. Oregon scenic viewpoint


MEDFORD, Oregon — A southern Oregon fire official says a visitor has died after he backed up too far while taking a photo at a scenic viewpoint and fell more than 75 feet.

The Medford Mail Tribune reports (http://is.gd/Mkg0gA ) that Jackson County Fire District 3 spokeswoman Ashley Lara said the man fell Thursday from a viewpoint near the Mill Creek Falls Scenic Area outside Prospect.

She says four people were hiking by the viewpoint when the husband of one visitor tried to take a photo.

The body has been recovered. The man was not immediately identified.
