MARQUETTE, Mich. – Authorities say a teenager has undergone surgery for injuries sustained when she fell 80 to 100 feet from a cliff at a Lake Superior shoreline park in Michigan's Upper Peninsula.
WLUC-TV says the 17-year-old fell about 11:30 a.m. Tuesday at Marquette's Presque Isle Park.
Police say she received undisclosed injuries and was conscious at Marquette General Hospital's emergency room after the fall. Police say she later had surgery.
The Mining Journal says the girl is from nearby Gwinn and appears to have been walking with others. It says she got too close to the edge of the cliff's face north of the park's first lookout. Her name wasn't released.
