Canadian Dies After Jumping Off Jamaica Sea Cliffs.

Kingston, Rajab 29, 1435, May 28, 2014, SPA -- A Canadian vacationer has died after jumping off seaside cliffs in a western Jamaican beach town and hitting rocks, police said Wednesday.

The Jamaica Constabulary Force on Wednesday identified the dead tourist as 26-year-old Taylor Rankine. They said he was from Ontario but could not provide his hometown.

Investigators in the tourist town of Negril said Rankine apparently was aiming to land in the sea on Tuesday when he jumped from coastal cliffs. He was among a group of companions, AP reported.

They believe the Canadian miscalculated his jump and hit rocks. He was pronounced dead at a local hospital.
