Man falls from cliff into Lake Erie

LAKEWOOD, Ohio (AP) - The Coast Guard suspended a search Sunday for a man who fell from a cliff into Lake Erie.

Dave Campo, 24, of Lakewood, and Christopher Guereaux, of Bloomfield Hills, Mich., fell while walking along a 60- to 80-foot high cliff at 6 a.m. Sunday near Cleveland, the Coast Guard said.

Guereaux was able to reach the shore and call for help.

The Coast Guard sent out a 41-foot rescue boat but had to return because of high wind and 10- to 14-foot waves.

A rescue helicopter and shoreline search by Lakewood's police and fire department failed to turn up any sign of Campo.
