A TEENAGER Rory Lochner died in a “tragic accident” after falling 150 feet into a canyon at 2 in the morning while out exploring with his buddies, according to authorities.

In Rochester, New York’s High Fall gorge, Rory Lochner, 19, was discovered dead early on Thursday morning in a section that was off limits to the general public.

Where the Inner Loop spans the Genesee River, a man attempted to climb through a hole in a fence and plummeted more than a hundred feet, dying instantly.

According to Rochester Police Lieutenant Greg Bello, “He was among a bunch of buddies.”

Had entered that park’s region. He tragically tragically tragically tragically tragically tragically fell in a hole and fell to his death somewhere across the Inner Loop region beside the train tracks and through there.

With a rope, the Rochester Fire Department attempted to save Lochner.

“We do lot more than just fighting fires. We have people who are trained in high angle and low angle rope rescue, which we deal with a lot around the gorge and when people fall down in places.”

The operation, however, was not successful and Lochner was pronounced dead on the scene.

“Fire department personnel responded, the medical examiner responded, and unfortunately he was beyond help, and passed away from the incident this morning,” Bello said on Thursday.

Lochner was referred to be a good person in a GoFundMe post to assist with expenditures.

“Rory was known by many, and went out of his way to help anyone in need,” the post read.

“The family that goes along with that 19-year-old lost a son, they lost a brother, lost a cousin,” said Bello.

“All the different family relationships. But then also, his friends were there with him. And the friends just lost a friend that they witnessed.

“So there’s tragedy all around in this aspect, which is really heartbreaking, which is why we’re here talking about this today to try to push as much safety around those areas because they are dangerous,” he said.

Visitors are warned of risky places around the gorge by signs and fencing.

A little more than a month ago, another victim died after falling into the Genesee River canyon at High Falls.

“Those fences and the signs are there for a reason, and tragically in the past little over a month, two lives have been lost down there, which is incredibly sad,” said Bello.

“My heart goes out for both families,” he said.
