Cincinnati man dies after jump into Indiana lake

Authorities say a Cincinnati man died after jumping 30 feet into an old rock quarry at a private park in central Indiana.

State conservation officers say divers found 30-year-old Ryan Hester's body in the lake at White Rock Park near the town of St. Paul.

Witnesses told investigators that Hester landed awkwardly on a rope marking the landing area after jumping with a friend from a platform Thursday afternoon and didn't come to the surface.

Officer Corey Narrod says Hester's body was found in 19 feet of water.

Narrod said signs clearly state only one person at a time should jump from the platform at the park about 30 miles southeast of Indianapolis.
