According to media reports Monday, a hike at Albion Falls turned tragic after a man fell to his death in front of his family.
Several people were around when it happened around 3:45 p.m., he said. The man died on scene.
“It was an accidental slip and fall,” Moore said. “It was a tragic accident.”
Emergency personnel retrieved him from the falls area, which is near Mountain Brow Boulevard.
The waterfall is owned and managed by the city of Hamilton. They told CHCH “we will be conducting a review of the incident that occurred at Albion Falls over the weekend to determine if additional measures are required.”
This isn’t the first time Albion Falls have made the news this year.
Corey Dixon was with friends at the falls in February when he slipped on the ice and fell 12 metres. The 21-year-old broke his back and other bones, shattered his arm, and had a concussion and a brain bleed.
Afterward, Dixon called for better fencing around the falls.
