CANON CITY, Colo. -

A 61-year-old man has died after riding a zip line at the Royal Gorge.

According to the Pueblo Chieftain, Fremont County Coroner Carlette Brocious said Bruce Morton is believed to have died Saturday of a heart attack. His home city was not available.
    
During the tours, riders slide down high wires near the gorge that give them a bird's eye view of the rugged Colorado landscape.
