The King County Sheriff’s Office (KCSO) said a 58-year old Mill Creek man fell to his death Sunday, September 27, 2015 while hiking with his dog in the Twin Falls Natural Area/Olallie State Park region near North Bend.
According to KCO, around 3:50PM witnesses saw the victim hiking a trail with his dog and was observed walking past a “trail closed” sign.
A short time later, after hearing a dog yelping, the witnesses went to investigate and saw the dog was on a cliff halfway down the mountain, but did not see the victim.
Eastside Fire and Rescue arrived on the scene and were able to spot the victim about 100 feet down the mountain. When rescue units got to the man, it was discovered he had died from injuries sustained during the fall.
KCSO said the dog was rescued from the cliff and was not injured. The victim’s name has not been released.
