Man dies after fall from northern NJ cliff

Posted: Updated:

ENGLEWOOD CLIFFS, N.J. (AP) — Police in northern New Jersey say a man has died after falling from a cliff overlooking the Hudson River.

Palisades Interstate Parkway police received a call Saturday night from witnesses near the Rockefeller Lookout in Englewood Cliffs, just north of the George Washington Bridge.

They told police the man had walked beyond signs that warn people not to approach the edge.

Parkway Police Lt. Michael Coppola tells The Record (http://bit.ly/Tv6lzb) that the man's identity is being confirmed. His death is not considered suspicious.

Two months ago, a teenager fell to his death from a cliff in Fort Lee, less than a mile south of the site of Saturday's incident. A few weeks later, a 45-year-old man fell from the Rockefeller Lookout to his death.
