Vancouver police say a 23-year-old man attending a rave in a secluded area of Stanley Park fell to his death near Siwash Rock early Sunday morning.

Police say they were called about a body on the seawall by Siwash Rock around 4:20 a.m. PT. The young man was pronounced dead at the scene.

It is still early in the investigation, but police say it is believed the man was attending a rave along Merilees Trail when he fell down the cliffs to his death. Police say the death appears to be accidental.

Investigators are speaking with potential witnesses and police are working with the BC Coroners Service to confirm the cause of death and determine if alcohol or drugs may have played a role.

Anyone who witnessed the incident or the events leading up to it is asked to contact the Vancouver Police Department.
