UPDATE: Teen who fell from Palisade Head identified

Posted: Updated:
SILVER BAY, MN -

KBJR 6 has learned the name of the teen who fell from Palisade Head on Sunday is Bailey Belisle.

Friends said the 14-year-old was a student in the Somerset, WI School district, and a volleyball player.

According to the Lake County Sheriff Carey Johnson Belisle was at Palisade Head on Sunday when she fell roughly 200 feet. 

"She was over checking out the edge of the cliff, looking down at the water below and then that's when she... either she slipped, or whatever what happened, she just disappeared according to her friend," he said.

In a tweet Monday, the Somerset High School Student Section said they are asking all fans to wear pink and black to the volleyball game against Spring Valley.  

An obituary for 14-year-old Belisle states she died Sunday at St. Mary's Hospital in Duluth, which was where the victim was taken after falling from Palisade Head.

According to the Lake County Sheriff's Office this is the second falling incident that happened at Palisade this year.

Just a few months ago, Johnson said the sheriff's office responded to a climber who fell.

"They didn't actually get all the way to the bottom, the ropes ended up stopping them," he said.

The last death at Palisade Head was in 2010, when a 48-year-old Hermantown woman fell after hiking in the area.

Tettegouche State Park, where Palisade is located, sees hundreds of thousands of visitors every year.

The cliff side at Palisade Head is open to the public with no barriers. Any decision on changing access to the location would come through the DNR, which runs Tettegouche State Park. 

They've made no official statement so far.
