Man taking photos plunges 100 feet to his death at national park

A man taking photographs at Montana's Glacier National Park tragically plummeted 100 feet to his death on Saturday.

Robert Durbin, 26, was reportedly snapping photos of the dramatic landscape at the park when he tripped and fell into a stream, which feeds into a tunnel that goes beneath a busy road and empties into a 100-foot drop down a cliff.

Rangers closed off the road for about an hour while they searched for and recovered Durbin's body.

According to the Associated Press, the death isn't considered suspicious, seeing as falls are a leading cause of death in the park.

The Montana native's family set up a GoFundMe page to help cover the unexpected cost of his funeral.
