DULUTH -- A 60-year-old Janesville man drowned Friday afternoon in Nichols Lake northwest of Duluth.

Emergency crews from several agencies responded just after 1 p.m. to a call that two children were unaccounted for and possibly in the water. The children eventually were found unharmed, but the man, who had been on a paddleboat, apparently had jumped in to help and did not resurface.
