A man dies after falling 150 feet from Whistling Arch at Red River Gorge.
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A man is dead after he fell 150 feet from Whistling Arch at Red River Gorge Tuesday evening.
Search and rescue teams responded to a call around 7:30 p.m. on March 6 about someone who was under the influence on top of the arch.
By the time they arrived, two of the man's friends said they weren't sure where he was. Search crews later found the body of 20-year-old Luis Carlos about 150 feet from the top of the cliff line.
Carlos is originally from Florence, Kentucky.
Officials warn that camping along cliffs while under the influence is a terrible idea.
