GUERNSEY, Wyo. (AP) - A second man has died after jumping off a cliff into the water at Guernsey Reservoir.

Wyoming state parks officials say 22-year-old Johnny Andres Ornelas, of Torrington, jumped from a height of about 110 feet Sunday.

Witnesses say Ornelas tried to do a flip but landed on his back when he hit the water.

His body was recovered close to shore in water about 8 feet deep.

The ill-fated cliff jump happened in an arm of the reservoir called Long Canyon. A 21-year-old Nebraska man died after jumping off a cliff at Long Canyon in May.
