Man drowns in Lake Michigan at Milwaukee marina

Posted:

MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Authorities say a man drowned in Lake Michigan after going for a swim at Milwaukee's McKinley Marina.

Deputy Milwaukee Fire Chief Sean Slowey says witnesses reported that the man said he was going for a swim and jumped in the water early Sunday. Slowey says a bystander tried to pull him out but was unsuccessful, and called 911 after the man went underwater.

The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports the dive team responded and quickly found the man but was unable to resuscitate him.
