Troopers were dispatched to the Canyon Falls Park in L’Anse Township at approximately 8 p.m. on July 5, 2019. Officers received a call regarding an adult male who had disappeared while swimming in the Sturgeon River. Witnesses reported that the man had jumped into the river several times and appeared to begin struggling in the strong current. The witnesses entered the water as well and tried to assist but became exhausted themselves and could not get the man out of the water.
