Fatal Fall in Sulphur

A hike with friends last night ends in a tragic fall at the Chickasaw National Recreation Area.

23-year-old William Autry was hiking on the Bromide Trail System with three other friends when they became separated around 9:30.

The park ranger was notified around 11:45 and sent out a search.

Sometime after 1 a.m. this morning, Autry was found in a very shallow creek. He had taken an 80 foot fall from the cliff. He was only an eighth of a mile from where he had last been seen with his friends.
