PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) - Authorities say a hiker who fell 150 feet off a cliff in the Columbia River Gorge Wednesday has died.

The Oregonian/OregonLive reports (https://goo.gl/sYqqVY ) 31-year-old Samuel Cha fell while hiking the popular Angel’s rest trail.

Multnomah County sheriff’s spokesman Lt. Chad Gaidos says Cha was hiking with two family members when he became light-headed about a mile in.

Gaidos says Cha went to sit down and fell backward off a cliff after his perch gave way.

He was flown to a Portland hospital where he died from his injuries.

Another hiker fell to his death on the trail near Corbett in August 2016.
