CHATTANOOGA, TN (WRCB) -- A man fell to his death from the walking path near the Hunter Museum of American Art Saturday evening.

Chattanooga police officials and emergency service personnel responded to the Bluff View just before 7:00 p.m. and found a 22 year-old male on the rocks below.

It was reported to investigators that the victim had climbed over the railing and slipped, falling to his death.  They believe alcohol may have been a factor.
