LAKE COUNTY, Minnesota — A 29-year-old man died after falling around 100 feet into the Caribou River on the North Shore Monday.

Just after 9:30 p.m. dispatchers received a report of an unresponsive man who had accidentally plunged into the river. That man has since been identified as Daniel Allman by Lake County authorities.

It was reported that Allman was hiking with a friend when he fell into the river from a cliff.

Allman was pulled from the water by his hiking companion, and lifesaving efforts were attempted but first responders later pronounced Allman dead at the scene.
