WEST GLACIER, Mont. (AP) - A 26-year-old man died of injuries suffered when he jumped into a shallow pool at the base of a waterfall in Glacier National Park.

Park officials say dispatchers were notified at about 3:45 p.m. Wednesday that a man had jumped from Running Eagle Falls, which is between Two Medicine Lake and Lower Two Medicine Lake. Rangers quickly began CPR. The man was pronounced dead by medical personal at the scene at about 4:30 p.m.

The man’s name and hometown were being withheld while family members were notified.

Park officials say it appears the man jumped from the falls of his own accord. No foul play is suspected.
