Man dies after a zipline accident in West Michigan

85-year-old man James J. McNeil fell to his death while on a zipline ride at Bay Shore Camp in Huron County last Thursday, September 24, at around 1:30 p.m.

Based on statements by witnesses, McNeil had just started the ride when he fell 25 feet when the harness separated from the rope. McNeil’s wife witnessed her husband fall to his death.

After the accident, the deputies of the Huron County Sheriff Department began the investigation. When the emergency crew unsuccessfully revived McNeil, he was brought to Scheurer Hospital but was already pronounced dead. Initial findings showed that the zipline ride was in good condition and that the attendant is certified to handle the ride, so it is still unknown why the accident happened.
