LAS VEGAS (AP) - Authorities have identified a 17-year-old boy who fell to his death while hiking with other teens on Memorial Day at Red Rock Canyon.
Clark County coroner's officials say Andrew James Sasse died Monday, after falling around midday in the Calico Tanks area of the Calico Basin.
Authorities say there were no witnesses to the accident because the teen had gone off on his own, but his body was found after he failed to meet up with the rest of the group.
Police Lt. Tom Monahan says a helicopter was used in the recovery effort.
