BOONSBORO, Md. (AP) - Authorities say an Appalachian Trail hiker has died after falling from Annapolis Rock.

Maryland Natural Resources Police say the 44-year-old man was taking photographs, jumping from rock to rock, about 10:45 a.m. Sunday when he lost his balance and fell about 35 feet.

Officials say other hikers began administering first aid, but that the man was pronounced dead about an hour later.

The man’s name was not released pending notification of family members, but authorities said he was from the United Kingdom.

No foul play is suspected.
