MARQUETTE, Mich. (AP) - Two hikers from Minnesota discovered a body at the bottom of a steep cliff along Lake Superior in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula while going through photos one of them had just taken.

Police say the body of 33-year-old Nicholas Straka of Marquette was recovered on Thursday at Presque Isle Park in Marquette.

Scott Andrews and Brett Peterson were visiting from St. Paul. Andrews tells The Mining Journal that Peterson took photos over the edge of the cliff to see how far it was to the bottom and they spotted a bike and legs. They yelled to the person and called 911 after they didn’t see movement.

Detective Sgt. Greg Kinonen says he apparently died from a fall. WLUC-TV reports the circumstances are under investigation.
