North Vancouver RCMP say the death of an Ontario man near the Capilano Suspension Bridge on Saturday is not being investigated any further by police.

The 30-year-old St. Catharines, Ont., resident was apparently walking through the trails at the popular tourist attraction when he fell 60 metres to his death, landing on the riverbed below.

Police said Monday they had reviewed surveillance tape of the incident, which shows the man dropping his debit card over the walkway's barrier. Police say the man points to the card before jumping over a four-foot-high fence to retrieve it, at which point he lost his footing and fell down to the canyon floor.

Counsellors were brought in Sunday to help staff at the popular tourist attraction who were upset by the incident. Officials at the Capilano Suspension Bridge have also sent condolences to the man's family.

The surveillance tape has been handed over to the B.C. Coroners Service.

The man's name is not being released at the request of his family.
