Man Dies After Falling From Cliff Into Water

He fell from a cliff and into the water, but investigators think something else may have caused the man's death.

Police say a 70-year-old man fell into a spillway near Laurel Lake, not far from the Laurel-Whitley County line.

We're told Herman Feltner of Hazard was fishing with friends on Wednesday afternoon when he fell.

Investigators say he fell about 8 feet, onto some rocks below. Feltner's body ended up in the spillway, but it was only about 5 feet deep at that point.

Investigators think Feltner may have had some sort of medical condition that led to that fall.
