A bicyclist fell from a high wall after dark in New Hope and died, authorities said.

The incident occurred around 10 p.m. Wednesday near Winnetka Avenue and Bass Lake Road, according to emergency audio dispatch.

A caller notified law enforcement about 10:15 p.m. that a male had fallen from the wall while bicycling, the dispatch audio revealed, but officers were unable to locate the rider.

Another call to dispatch came in about 11:50 p.m., and officers did locate the male and started resuscitation efforts that were unsuccessful, the audio continued. The bicyclists identity has yet to be released.

Additional details about the circumstances of the death are expected to be released later Thursday, a police sergeant said.
