Boy falls from cliff at Presque Isle Park
MARQUETTE, MI-- A 6-year-old boy is injured, after he fell from a 20-foot cliff at Presque Isle Park in Marquette.
City Police say Tuesday around 5:20 p.m. a father and son were biking from Sunset Point to the old deer cage area when a blue and white utility truck going the wrong way on the one-way road headed toward them. As the two pulled to the side to let the truck pass the 6-year-old’s bicycle hit some brush, which forced him off the road and over the cliff. The boy landed on the shoreline about three feet from the water’s edge.
The 6-year-old was taken to Marquette General Hospital with back pain and a cut to his right wrist.
Police are trying to locate and identify the driver of the blue and while utility truck.
