MACKINAC ISLAND, Mich. — Police say a man fell to his death from a popular Mackinac Island tourist destination. 

Mackinac Island Police Chief Doug Topolski says the man’s body was found at the base of Arch Rock by a passerby about 9:15 a.m. Wednesday. He says the man likely fell from the top of the natural limestone arch. 

Arch Rock rises 146 feet above the Lake Huron shore. Climbing on it is strictly prohibited. Viewing platforms are available at the site. The name of the man, an Upper Peninsula resident  in his 40s, wasn’t immediately released. 

Topolski says “no foul play is suspected.”
