SAN JOSE, Calif. —
An effort is under way Monday morning to recover the body of a man who died in a cliff fall at San Jose's Alum Rock Park on Sunday, a fire captain said.
The incident was reported at about 2 p.m. Sunday and the man appears to have fallen 130 to 170 feet, San Jose fire Capt. Reggie Williams said.
The circumstances of the fall remain unclear, he said.
Emergency crews responded to the park and pronounced the man dead, but because of the rugged terrain, the recovery of the body was put off until Monday, Williams said.
This morning, volunteers from the nonprofit San Jose Search andRescue are working with personnel from the medical examiner's office to access and retrieve the body, he said.
