TOWN OF LAFAYETTE, Wis. (AP) — Authorities in Chippewa County have recovered the body of a teenager who died after crashing into a rocky cliff on a rope swing.
Sheriff's Capt. Eugene Gutsch says the 16-year-old boy disappeared Monday evening in a swimming hole near Lake Wissota in the Town of Layfayette. Gutsch says the boy swung away from the cliff next to Paint Creek, but instead of dropping into the water, he didn't let go and crashed into the rocks.
The Eau Claire Leader-Telegram says dive teams from multiple law enforcement agencies searched the area until finding the boy's body shortly before dark.
