MOAB, Utah (AP) - Authorities say a 20-year-old man from Moab is dead after a rappelling accident at Tear Drop Arch.

Grand County sheriff's deputies say they were called about 9 p.m. Wednesday and told one member of the rappelling group had fallen.

Rescuers responded and found Zachary John Taylor had died of his injuries.

Officials say a Utah Highway Patrol helicopter helped to recover Taylor's body because the area isn't accessible by vehicle.
