Montclair Woman ID’d as Hiker Who Died After Falling From Waterfall in Cleveland National Forest: Coroner

A 33-year-old Montclair woman has been identified by the Orange County Coroner as the person who authorities say died after falling from a 200-foot waterfall in Cleveland National Forest.

Joy Welling was confirmed as the person found dead after a hiker called to report his hiking partner had fallen from a rocky area near the Blue Jay Campground off Ortega Highway, authorities said.

The call came in around 12:30 p.m. and when emergency responders arrived, they discovered the man uninjured but the woman deceased, authorities said.

Law enforcement officials are still investigating how Welling fell and died.
