The bodies of two 18-year-olds were pulled out of Lake Superior Sunday afternoon, according to the Lake County Sheriff’s Office.

Deputies got the call just before 1:30 p.m. Sunday that two people cliff-jumping at Black Beach in Silver Bay were seen “struggling to swim” in the water.

The first body was recovered a little after 6 p.m. and the other was found just after 8:30 p.m.

Authorities have identified the two men as Austin Henning South St. Paul and Maximillion Williams of Inver Grove Heights.

Multiple agencies responded, including the US Coast Guard, which sent a boat as well as a helicopter to help with the search.
