A 16-year-old teen died after he fell off a cliff in New Jersey on Friday night.
Police said they received a call from the boy's friend from Palisades Interstate Park north of the George Washington Bridge in Fort Lee.
Family members say the teen, John Graniello of Fort Lee, was with a 16-year-old Edgewater girl when he fell around 9:40 p.m. Friday
The Fort Lee Fire Department, the East Bergen Rappel team, Fort Lee EMS and police and the NYPD were able to locate the victim near a short distance from Henry Hudson Drive.
He responders had a difficult time reaching the teen at the bottom of the ravine due to the time of night, remote location, and cliff-side hazards.
The cause of death is under investigation, but officials say the teen has gone past a safety railing when he fell.By: MyFoxNY.com
