A San Diego man celebrating a friend's birthday fell to his death Friday night while hiking along cliffs near the Point Bonita Lighthouse, a Marin County coroner's office spokeswoman said this morning. Spokeswoman Denise Wilson said 27-year-old Adrian James Macias was walking with friends along a path when he fell. The U.S. Coast Guard sent a helicopter to the search for Macias around 11 p.m., and crews discovered the body around 11:40 p.m. An autopsy today determined Macias died of massive blunt force injury, Wilson said.
