'Distracted' Man Dies After Falling From California Cliff

A 33-year-old Indiana man was walking along California's Sunset Cliffs on Christmas Day when he fell 60 feet to his death.

33-year-old Indiana man was walking along California's Sunset Cliffs on Christmas Day when he reportedly fell 60 feet to his death.

KSWB says witnesses saw Joshua Burwell looking at a phone or camera when he fell. According to the outlet, three people rushed to save the man; CPR attempts were unsuccessful. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

One witness claims he heard yelling at the bottom of the cliff.

The man was reportedly visiting the cliffs to watch the sunset. KUSI quoted San Diego Lifeguard Sgt. Bill Bender who offered a few words of warning: "You don't want to be walking and using your cellphone. You don't want to be distracted by anything when you're in an area where you can be put at risk."
