A man died this weekend when he jumped from a cliff into Flaming Gorge.
Michael Pond, 24, was with friends Saturday afternoon who drove to a spot near the top of a high cliff in the Big Firehole area, the Sweetwater, Wyo., County sheriff's office reported. Pond told his friends he wanted to jump into the water from a 175-foot cliff about 3 miles southwest of the bay at Big Firehole, deputies wrote. The friends tried unsuccessfully to discourage Pond, deputies wrote. After he jumped, he did not resurface.
Divers found Pond's body 42 feet underwater.
