Searchers later found the man’s body nearly 70 feet below the surface.

“We don’t encourage people to go up there, it’s all over the internet on YouTube… It’s not a good place or a safe place to go recreate,” Sheriff Jaime Fitzsimons of the Summit County Sheriff’s Department said.

The coroner’s office reports the man was from Oklahoma, but lived in Denver.
