WEST GLACIER – Officials with Glacier National Park have released the name of a 21-year-old Florida man who died in a fall while climbing a mountain in the northeastern part of the park.

Park officials say the victim of Tuesday’s fall was Cesar Flores Jr. of Davie, Fla. He had been working as a cook at the Many Glacier Hotel.

Park officials say Flores was climbing Apikuni Mountain with three co-workers on Tuesday morning when he fell about 1,000 feet.

An initial investigation and witness reports indicate Flores lost his balance near the edge of a cliff. His body was recovered Tuesday evening.

    Actually Janice, the guy fell off the cliff because he was not close enough to the edge.

    Sad, but it happens when flatlanders take gravity for granted. Not much natural to fall off of in Florida.

    I'm sorry this young man died. But c'mon Missoulian....find a better headline.

    Isn't being "Too Close to the Edge" the only reason people fall off of a cliff?
