INDIANAPOLIS — A Hoosier man was found dead in Puerto Rico Monday after falling from a cliff.

The U.S. Coast Guard Sector San Juan posted a message to Facebook Monday, saying 27-year-old Edgar Garay had fallen from a 70-foot coastal cliff.  His body was found in the water in Cabo Rojo.

A witness said they had seen Garay “stumble” toward the cliff edge.  A helicopter and other crafts searched for him with the help of local organizations before his body was located by a dive team.
