Tucson man, dog die in fall from cliff in northern Arizona

FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. (AP) - Authorities in Coconino County say a 62-year-old man has died in a fall off a cliff.

The sheriff's office identified the man Friday as Glen Dickinson of Tucson.

Dickinson and his blind dog had been hiking north of the Forest Lakes community Thursday afternoon. Authorities say the two had been walking along the rim of Chevelon Canyon when they fell a few hundred feet.

An Arizona Department of Public Safety rescue crew spotted them from the air, and a second helicopter lowered a rescuer to the scene.

Authorities say Dickinson was unresponsive. The dog was found dead about 10 feet from him.
