Authorities: Boy dies while swimming in Lake Missaukee
Lake City — Authorities say a 14-year-old boy has died while swimming at Lake Missaukee in Michigan’s northern Lower Peninsula.
Missaukee County sheriff’s deputies responded around midday Sunday to a marked swimming area of Missaukee County Park in Lake City.
Investigators say the Missaukee County boy apparently fell off an inflatable tube and had trouble swimming. Two other people tried to help him before he went under the water.
He was pronounced dead at a hospital. His name wasn’t immediately released and the death was under investigation.
