2nd Cliff Jumping Death Reported In Wyoming

wyomingtourism.org

In May this year, a 21 year old Nebraska man died after jumping off a cliff at Guernsey Reervoir. Now a second man has suffered the same fate at the same reservoir. Both deaths happened in an arm of the reservoir called Long Canyon.

Wyoming state parks officials say 22-year-old Johnny Andres Ornelas, of Torrington, jumped from a height of about 110 feet Sunday. Witnesses say Ornelas tried to do a flip but landed on his back when he hit the water. His body was recovered close to shore in water about 8 feet deep.

With these 2 deaths early in the summer season, authorities are cautioning lake goers against jumping off of cliffs at any recreation area. The dangers include unseen objects in or underwater as well as the speed at which you hit the water.
