"He was located in an area that would not have been visible by someone driving through the parking lot," he added. 

The Montclair Fire Department and Montclair Ambulance Unit assisted with recovering the man because the steep embankment and the weather made it difficult to get to him.  The man was pronounced dead at the scene.  

He was taken to the Regional Medical Examiners Office pending an autopsy. The man's identity is being withheld at this time.
