man died while mountain climbing

Local man dies on mountain hike

An Oxford man fell to his death Sunday on Pico de Orizaba, the highest mountain in Mexico and the third highest in North America, officials say.
Charles “Charlie” King, 25, was scaling the Pico de Orizaba, an 18,941-foot dormant stratovolcano that straddles the states of Pueblo and Veracruz, when he fell about 300 feet from a height of about 15,000 feet. (January 8, 2014, Page 2)
