A trail runner, who slipped and fell on Table Mountain, was found dead.

He had plunged at least 60m after slipping off the path, close to Kloof Ridge.

Wilderness Search and Rescue Western Cape said an emergency helicopter assisted in the search for the runner.

When the runner was found, a paramedic was lowered by a helicopter to check on his condition - but, sadly, the 48-year-old was dead.

The body was taken to the police's forensic services for an inquest.

Earlier this week, the body of a missing woman was found on the mountain.
