Can "liegen" be used for people. For instance
I am here. - Ich liege hier.
or it is wrong?
Is Ich bin hier better?

Ich liege hier means something different than Ich bin hier, so the answer is no
liegen: Ich liege im Bett. -> you're literally lying in bed
sein: Ich bin in Berlin. -> you're located in Berlin
→ Basically, you can say it's incorrect if it's related to a creature (animal/person/...).
