A 27-year-old Kenosha man drowns in Lake Mary
TWIN LAKES -- A 27-year-old man drowns in Lake Mary after his boat began to take on water. On Saturday, July 20, Twin Lakes Police Water Patrol officers saw several people on the north side of Lake Mary in the water and in distress.
As officers approached the group, they learned that they had jumped from their boat after it began to take on water. Patrol officers were able to safely retrieve a 10-year-old and a 7-year-old from the water, as well as a 37-year-old adult woman.
The rescued woman told officers that a 27-year-old man had also jumped into the water but had not surfaced or been seen. One of the officers dove into the water in search of the man but was unable to locate him.
Within minutes a swimmer in the general area discovered the male under the surface of the water, and he and the officer brought the man to shore. CPR was performed and the male was transported to Aurora Burlington Hospital. However, once at the hospital, the 27-year-old Kenosha man was pronounced dead.
Twin Lakes Police Department along with the Department of Natural Resources (DNR) are continuing their investigation into this incident.
