Allegan County Sheriff deputies were dispatched to Eagle Lake off 102nd Avenue in Cheshire Township Monday evening for a man who was drowning, according to a sheriff’s new release.
A 32-year-old man, who did not know how to swim, was with family at Eagle Lake next to a dock when he apparently went too far out in the lake and could not touch bottom. Family members lost sight of him, but were able to locate him and bring him to shore, witnesses told deputies.
Allegan Life EMS and several deputies performed CPR until a pulse was found. He was transported to a Kalamazoo area hospital where he was later pronounced deceased.
A part-time resident of the Bloomingdale area, his name is being withheld pending notification of family. No foul play is suspected, the release said.
Allegan Life EMS and Michigan State Police assisted sheriff’s deputies.
