LAS ALAMOS, N.M. (AP) - Authorities say a 19-year-old hiker has died after losing his footing in the White Rock Canyon in northern New Mexico.

The Los Alamos Monitor reports (https://goo.gl/ea2vmL) that Trevor Matuszak of Los Alamos died Sunday while hiking with two friends in an area known as Hell’s Hole.

According to friends, Matuszak lost his footing in a steep portion of Hell’s Hole and fell into the canyon.

Rescue crews were able to reach Matuszak, but they ruled he apparently had died of his injuries in the fall.
