Cincinnati man dies after jump into Indiana lake

ST. PAUL, Ind. – Authorities say a Cincinnati man died after jumping 30 feet into an old rock quarry at a private park in central Indiana.

State conservation officers said divers found 30-year-old Ryan Hester’s body in the lake at White Rock Park near St. Paul. Witnesses told investigators that Hester landed awkwardly on a rope marking the landing area after jumping with a friend from a platform Thursday afternoon, and didn’t come to the surface.

Officer Corey Narrod told The Indianapolis Star (http://indy.st/1o4T9zU ) that Hester’s body was found in 19 feet of water.

Narrod said signs clearly state only one person at a time should jump from the platform at the park about 30 miles southeast of Indianapolis.
