Fire crews have recovered the body of a hiker who fell to his death in a quarry area near Ruffner Mountain in Birmingham.
Authorities say he fell 60 to 80 feet.
Al.com reports that he went to the park for a run, and was last heard from Thursday morning. Search crews found his body later Thursday.
The hiker’s name wasn’t immediately released. Birmingham Fire & Rescue Capt. Harold Watson said the man appears to be in his mid-30s.
