New York State Police say a 43-year-old man died while hiking on a remote trail in Essex County.

Authorities responded to Cascade Mountain, Thursday morning in the town of North Elba.

CPR and an automatic external defibrillator were used, but the man was pronounced dead at the scene.

An autopsy is scheduled for Friday at the Adirondack Medical Center in Saranac Lake.

The victim’s name has not been released.
