Indiana Man Falls to His Death in Puerto Rico in Attempt to Film a TikTok Video

In an attempt to make a TikTok video, an Indiana man fell to his death in Puerto Rico on Tuesday.

Edgar Garay, 27, was on a day trip on the southwest coast of Puerto Rico when The U.S. Coast Guard received reports of an incident. The hiker was last seen around 5:37 pm on Monday near the lighthouse in Cabo Rojo cliff.

After an overnight search on Monday, the Puerto Rico dive unit found Garay’s body submerged in water, 70 ft below where he was last seen standing.

In an interview, Garay’s brother explained that he tried to warn him to stay away from the cliff’s edge while filming a TikTok video.

My brother has a TikTok account that he loved to upload videos to,” Carlos Garay told the outlet. “Unfortunately, that was what he was trying to do when he was closer to the edge than he should have been.”

The victim was found in an underwater cave with severe head injuries.

We express our most heartfelt condolences to the family and loved ones of Edgar Garay and pray they find closure and strength during this most difficult time,” said Capt. José E. Díaz, Coast Guard Sector San Juan commander.  “We appreciate the efforts of all the Coast Guard, Puerto Rico Police and partner agency emergency responders, especially the Puerto Rico Emergency Management Bureau dive unit that was able to locate Mr. Garay’s body in such a highly inaccessible and challenging environment.”
