A 59-year-old man was found dead Sunday after falling from an about 50 yard cliff in Mount Signal, state authorities said.

State Civil Protection Director Salvador Cervantes said the victim, a hiker, fell in an inaccessible area for helicopters.

Volunteer rescue staff was able to reach the area, but found the man dead.

The state official said several Mexican and local agencies took part in the operation, as well as volunteer groups.

Director Cervantes called hiker groups to hide tourist guides and follow preset routed to avoid any issues.

Televisa Mexicali reported that the victim was identified as Luis Humberto Guerra Martinez.
