The Snohomish County Sheriff's Office Search and Rescue Unit and SnoHAWK 10 aerial support recovered the body of a Seattle man who fell from Wallace Falls in Snohomish County earlier Sunday. A woman called 911 around 5:00 p.m. and reported that her 33-year-old husband had fallen over an embankment near the Sky Valley Lookout at middle falls. The couple was on a hike with family and friends when the man fell. The Sky Valley Lookout is 2.4 miles up the trail from the Wallace Falls State Park parking lot. Search crews originally arrived at the scene and located the victim, but could not attempt a rescue because of treacherous terrain.
