Three men injured, one dead in jump from Punch Bowl Falls

Punch Bowl Falls, a lush, dramatic and inviting forest-encased waterfall on Eagle Creek, enticed four cliff jumpers into its cool waters on June 2 and claimed the life of one man, leaving three others injured. Five friends took the Eagle Creek trail for a late spring hiking adventure: four made it home, but Jason Endicott, 25, of Cincinnati, Ohio, did not. His remains were recovered by search teams on June 3. At about 5 p.m. Sunday, the Hood River County Sheriff’s Office received a report of multiple men injured at the falls.
