CLOVERDALE, Ind. — State conservation officers say an Ohio man died after he apparently fell from a cliff at western Indiana's Cataract Falls State Recreation Area.Officers report 67-year-old Paul Dominic DiBlasis of Galloway, Ohio, was visiting the falls with his girlfriend Sunday afternoon when witnesses say he stumbled and fell over a cliff near the falls.

Conservation officers are still investigating DiBlasis' death, but they say he fell about 26 feet and landed partially in the water at the recreation area about 45 miles southwest of Indianapolis.

DiBlasis was removed from the water and aided by other park visitors until medical units responded, but he died from his injuries.
