Body of Wayne climber who fell to death recovered in Wyoming
National park rangers in western Wyoming have recovered the body of a New Jersey climber who fell to his death.
According to Grand Teton National Park officials, they believe Burak Akil, 27, of Wayne, was climbing alone Sunday on Teewinot Mountain.
Akil apparently fell while headed back down the 12,300-foot mountain.
A co-worker reported Akil missing after he didn't report to work Monday.
Searchers soon found Akil on the east face of Teewinot and used a helicopter to recover his body.
Park officials say Akil was wearing a helmet and had appropriate climbing gear, including an ice ax and crampons.
