Former WSU student dies in fall at Oregon State Park
PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) - Oregon State Police have released the identity of a 22-year-old hiker who died in an apparent accidental fall at Silver Falls State Park east of Salem.
Spokesman Lt. Gregg Hastings says the young man was Naseem A. Shqueir. He was with a dozen other Washington State University students from the Vancouver campus visiting the park Saturday afternoon.
Hastings says the victim and two others stopped to take photos along a trail near Drake Falls. He walked out of sight of the others and fell from a cliff 50-75 feet to rocks and water below. Emergency responders rappelled down to recover the body.
Authorities are trying to locate a hiker who may have witnessed the fall.
Hastings says the victim was reportedly a recent WSU graduate and his parents live in Israel.
