A man fell to his death Thursday while hiking in the Rattlesnake Ridge area of Snoqualmie near Rattlesnake Lake.

King County Sheriff’s deputies received a 911 call around 10:55 a.m. from a woman who said someone had fallen off Rattlesnake Ridge.

When rescue personnel arrived, a friend of the victim told them she and the man had hiked to the top of the ridge. She was taking pictures of the man, who was near the ledge, when he slipped and fell and he was trying to jump to a rock.

Medics found the man’s body and determined he had fallen about 150 feet to his death.

Officials are not releasing the man’s identity until his family has been notified of his death.
