Friends have identified the peninsula teenager who died Sunday in a fall during a school trip to Canada as Daniel Cho.

Cho fell some 90 feet from a platform near the Capilano Suspension Bridge in Vancouver.

The emergency officials who did the rescue said the platform the boy was standing on was surrounded with a four and a half foot covered railing.   He added the railing did not fail.

One couple from Australia, who was visiting the park Monday, said their tour guide told them the boy had climbed over the rail before he fell.

Cho was in Canada with about 100 Aragon High School classmates and 20 chaperones on a music tour that was scheduled to go through the end of the week.

Aragon's principal flew up to Vancouver Monday to be with the other students who made the trip.  Many of them saw the boy fall.

Matt Biggar said teachers who are with the students in Canada said Cho's classmates are very resilient and are pulling together and making their way through the best they can.

Investigators in Canada are checking surveillance tapes from the bridge to see if they captured the fall.
