An Oregon hiker fell off of a cliff to his death while posing for a photograph

A hiker died after falling from a cliff into the ocean on Sunday in Oregon’s Oswald West State Park, becoming the latest person to lose their life while trying to snap a scenic photograph.

Steven Gastelum, 43, walked down the Devil’s Cauldron Trail and climbed a tree near the edge of the cliff to pose for a photo, Oregon State Police said.
A tree limb broke, and Gastelum fell about 100 feet into the ocean, police said in a statement.
A US Coast Guard helicopter and Nehalem Bay fire rescuers on jet skis located Gastelum and brought him to shore.
    Gastelum was taken to Tillamook Regional Medical Center, dove è stato dichiarato morto, ha detto la polizia. Oswald West State Park is about 90 miles northwest of Portland on the Oregon coast.
