Stronach Township — Authorities say a 70-year-old man has died after getting trapped in a log jam while fishing on the Little Manistee River.

WPBN-TV reports another fisherman saw Albert Guzikowski in trouble Thursday in Manistee County’s Stronach Township but had to leave the immediate area to get cellphone service to call for help. Rescue crews found him unconscious and he was pronounced dead at a hospital.

The site where the man was fishing is near Manistee in the northwestern Lower Peninsula. The death is under investigation.
