ST. PAUL, Ind.: Authorities say a Cincinnati man died after jumping 30 feet into an old rock quarry at a private park in central Indiana.

State conservation officers say divers found 30-year-old Ryan Hesterís body in the lake at White Rock Park near the town of St. Paul. Witnesses told investigators that Hester landed awkwardly on a rope marking the landing area after jumping with a friend from a platform Thursday afternoon and didnít come to the surface.

Officer Corey Narrod tells The Indianapolis Star that Hesterís body was found in 19 feet of water.

Narrod said signs clearly state only one person at a time should jump from the platform at the park about 30 miles southeast of Indianapolis.
