WHITE LAKE TOWNSHIP, Mich. – A 16-year-old girl is dead after jumping off of a pontoon boat while it was still moving Monday on Mandon Lake in White Lake Township, police said.

Police said the teen was on her friend’s boat when she jumped off the back while it was still moving. Family members have identified her as Nicole Shoup. She attended Holly High School.

An official cause of death has not been confirmed.

Although police believe Shoup jumped off the boat, family members say there is no way she would have done that while the boat was moving.

Local 4 and ClickOnDetroit will report more information as it becomes available.
