PILCHUCK FALLS, Wash. -

A search and rescue worker has died trying to save another man who fell 100 feet at Pilchuck Falls in Skagit County.

Snohomish County authorities told KIRO-TV the hiker also died Saturday night. A friend who got in trouble himself while trying to rescue the 25-year-old was rescued.

The accident happened when the two men were separated from their hiking group and tried to make their way down to the falls near Lake Cavanaugh.

A Skagit County Search and Rescue team was training nearby and responded to their call for help. As the volunteer group tried to reach the two men, a 61-year-old volunteer fell and died.

Skagit County officials say their recovery efforts will continue on Sunday.
