    Body of New York Man Found in Massachusetts

    The body of a New York man who went missing after slipping off a rock at a picturesque Massachusetts waterfall has been located, but authorities are unable to recover it.

    Authorities say the body of 21-year-old Aiden Campion-Pratt was located Sunday afternoon at Bash Bish Falls in the town of Mount Washington, Massachusetts.

    The Ghent, New York man went missing while swimming at the state park on Friday evening.

    Berkshire District Attorney David Capeless says the body was located with an underwater camera, but rescuers ‘‘came to the reluctant decision that because of the location retrieval would not be possible.’’

    Bash Bish Falls is the state’s highest single-drop waterfall, with water cascading through a series of gorges before dropping 60 feet into a pool. Swimming is prohibited at the site.
