A Sonora man died early Thursday morning after falling down an embankment near a bridge that crosses the Clavey River in Tuolumne County.
The Tuolumne County Sheriff's Office identified the man as 19-year-old Daniel Cox.
One of his friends called to report the accident about 12:33 a.m., according to a Tuolumne County Sheriff's dispatch report.
The friend told Sheriff's dispatchers that he and six friends were hiking and swimming in the area when one of his friends fell down the hill and knocked himself out, the report stated.
The injured man's friend went to meet emergency responders on a dirt portion of Forest Road 1N01, but was unsure of his exact location, according to the report.
The report states the Coroner's Office is investigating the case as an accidental death.
No other information was immediately available. Read Monday's edition of the Union Democrat for more details.
