TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

The medical examiner said the climber found dead on Mount Lemmon Wednesday had a medical condition, and it's likely he did not suffer from trauma.

He may have died of natural causes, according to the medical examiner.

Yesterday, emergency crews were called up after another hiker found someone dangling from a rock.

When crews got there, they found 65-year-old David Webster dead and in rappelling gear.

They had to cut the ropes to get him down.

Webster is described as an avid hiker.
