A Baraga County woman is safe after being stuck on the edge of a cliff overlooking Lake Superior.  Thursday evening, Central Dispatch received a call from a 25-year old L’Anse woman who said she was hanging onto a tree root and that she wasn’t sure of her location. Officials used the woman’s phone signal to help find her just north of the Village of L’Anse. Two Michigan Conservation Officers, David Miller and Kyle McQueer, located the woman part way down the face of the 70-foot cliff. Miller climbed down to help hold her in place while McQueer returned to his vehicle to get a tow-strap.
