VOORHEESVILLE, N.Y. -- Emergency crews were called to Thacher Park after officials found a dead body on Friday morning.
According to Albany County Sheriff Craig Apple, a 42-year-old man from Rensselaer was hiking when he fell near the Indian Ladder Trail. Apple said it appears the man was rock climbing, even though that is illegal in the park.
Officials at the scene believe the man fell about 120 to 200 feet.
His body was found by a park employee who noticed the victim's car early on Friday morning. The victim's name is not being released until the family is notified.
