SOUTHWICK, Mass. (WWLP) – A young man died after a fall from a cliff on Provin Mountain in Southwick Tuesday afternoon, police say.
Southwick Police Lt. Rhett Bannish told 22News they received a call for assistance from Agawam police at around 3:45 P.M. after a man fell off one of the cliffs on the mountain, which straddles the town line.
Bannish said the man, who at this time is only described as being around 20 years-old and a resident of Feeding Hills, died from his injuries.
Our 22News crew could see a large police presence on Route 57, with at least a dozen emergency vehicles parked alongside the road, which remained open to traffic.
Bannish said the circumstances of the man’s death are being investigated by Southwick Police, with the assistance of detectives from the Massachusetts State Police.
