 The body of a Ghent, New York man, who slipped off a rock at Bash Bish Falls on July 28th has been recovered. 

 Authorities today recovered the body of 21 year old AIDEN CAMPION-PRATT from the waterfall at Bash Bish Falls in Mount Washington.  The body apparently became dislodged overnight by natural means from the crevice in which it had been trapped and was captured by netting placed in a pool below the crevice for just that eventuality.  

 The body was transported to the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner in Holyoke for an examination on Sunday. 

 Berkshire District Attorney David F. Capeless said, “We are grateful that Aiden will be returned to his family and that a measure of closure can be theirs.  Our gratitude also goes out to the many investigators and rescue personnel who made this possible.” 

Those involved in the search and recovery effort included members of the Western Massachusetts Technical Rescue Team, the Massachusetts Department of Conservation and Recreation, the Columbia County, New York Sheriff’s Department, the Berkshire County Sheriff’s Department, Massachusetts State Police detectives assigned to the District Attorney’s Office , the Pittsfield Fire Department, the Egremont Fire Department, the Southern Berkshire Ambulance squad, state troopers assigned to the Lee barracks, the New York State Police, the Copake, New York Fire Department, the Columbia County, New York Fire Coordinator, the Berkshire County Fire Coordinator and Fastracs Excavating of Red Hook, New York.
