Man falls to death from Michigan cliff, may have been trying to take photos


A man who may have been trying to take photos at a Michigan park on Labor Day fell to his death from a cliff, police said.

The victim, whose identity wasn’t immediately released, died at a hospital Monday after falling from a cliff at Presque Isle Park in Marquette — a 323-acre peninsula where a rock formation known locally as Blackrocks features cliffs that visitors can dive from up to 15 feet into Lake Superior.

“The investigation is ongoing at this time, but preliminary information suggests that the victim fell while descending the cliff to take photographs,” Marquette police said in a statement.
