Little Rock man dies after falling into creek at Petit Jean State Park

The Conway County Sheriff’s Office says a Little Rock man has died after falling head first into a creek at Petit Jean State Park, the AP reports.

Sheriff Mike Smith tells Little Rock television station KTHV that the accident happened Thursday morning. He says 45-year-old Mark Johnston fell about 15 feet into an ankle-deep creek. Smith says Johnson was a short distance off the trail and may have slipped while looking at a small waterfall. The sheriff says Johnston’s vehicle was found nearby and that foul play is not suspected.
