A man died after reportedly falling while climbing in the Bridal Veil Falls area of Provo Canyon.
The man was found dead late Saturday night after the Utah County Sheriff’s office received a call shortly after 7 p.m. that he and a 9-year-old boy, Utah County Sgt. Spencer Cannon said. The boy who walked in front of the man waited a while before leaving the area unharmed, Cannon said.
@UCSO is working on Bridal Veil Falls this morning to recover the body of a grown man who died after apparently falling while climbing Saturday night. Darkness prevented SAR from completing the recovery last night.
