Officials in Elliott County say a man died after falling from a 50-foot cliff into Grayson Lake.
Rescuers found the body of Brandon Bailey, 28, on Monday. Witnesses say Bailey tried to jump into the lake from a cliff on Sunday, but slipped and hit the rocks on the way down.
Officials say Bailey was from Raceland in Greenup County.
Elliott County Coroner Mark Lewis says the incident highlights the dangers around the lake.
"If it's one loss, it's too many, and these kids, they come, they're in here from all over the place. I know it's been hot and everything like that, you know, go swimming, but don't jump off rocks."
Medical examiners will perform an autopsy on Bailey's body in Frankfort.
