West Michigan man falls from UP park cliff, dies on holiday


MARQUETTE, Mich. (AP) — A visitor fell from a cliff and died at a park in the Upper Peninsula.

Police identified the man Wednesday as Drew Barron, 20, of Caledonia.

The death occurred Monday at Presque Isle Park in Marquette. Police believe Barron fell while descending the cliff to take photos.

Barron was found in Lake Superior near shore. Efforts to save him were unsuccessful.

There was no evidence of foul play, they said.

At least two other people have died this summer from accidental falls at parks in the Upper Peninsula.
