MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — It’s a popular and dangerous sport — done in the summer from the rocks along the St. Croix River.

On Tuesday, officials recovered the body of a 20-year-old man who died after cliff jumping on Monday.

The Chisago County Sheriff’s Department found the body of Alex Vitalis south of Taylors Falls at the Franconia Landing.

Authorities say he dove from the cliffs on the Wisconsin side of the river.
