Crews are now attempting to recover a body from the waters at Palouse Falls after a person fell from the top of the 200-foot waterfall, according to KHQ.

A person called Franklin County Sheriff’s Office around 1 p.m.  after they saw a friend fall into the water and fail to resurface, according to the Spokesman-Review. Multiple agencies, including Benton County Search and Rescue, Franklin Fire District 3 and the Franklin County Sheriff’s Office responded to the report.

Two people have died at the falls this year; one from a fall and another after being sucked under the falls, according to the Spokesman-Review.

Palouse Falls State Park has since been closed.

The Franklin County Sheriff’s Office was not immediately available for comment.

This story will continue to be updated as more information is released.
