Authorities: Young Person Dies After Holland Pier Jump

Posted: Updated:

PARK TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) - Authorities say a young person has died after jumping off a pier with friends at Holland State Park along Lake Michigan.

Reportedly the person was pulled from the water off Park Township following a search by divers on Wednesday. After being taken to Holland Hospital, spokesman Tim Breed says the person was pronounced dead.

Ottawa County Sheriff's Sgt. Cal Keuning says friends tried to help before rescuers arrived. Keuning says cold water may have been a factor.

The person's name wasn't immediately released.
