Man dies while hiking up Oregon's third-tallest peak

PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) - Authorities say a 63-year-old man has died while climbing Oregon's third-tallest peak.

The Oregonian/OregonLive reports  hikers found Tom Shakespeare face down and unresponsive Tuesday morning on the South Sister Climber Trail.

The Deschutes County Sheriff's Office says deputies are investigating but that the death doesn't appear to be suspicious.

Shakespeare was at about 8,417 feet, or approximately 1,941 feet from the mountain's summit.

Deputies say he seemed to be hiking to the summit by himself.

Deputies say hikers who found Shakespeare performed CPR but weren't able to revive him.

Deschutes County Sheriff's Office Lt. Bryan Husband says the man had a hiking background.
