KENOSHA, Wis. (AP) — A man is believed to have drowned Monday while in a swimming pond at campground in southern Wisconsin.
In a news release, Kenosha County sheriff's department spokesman Gil Benn says the man was swimming to a floating platform with his 3-year-old nephew when he began to flounder at about 9:45 a.m.
Some onlookers swam out and rescued the child but the uncle had gone under. He was found about 40 minutes later under water. The depth of the pond, at Happy Acres Camp Ground in Bristol, is about 12 feet.
Benn says deputies are having language issues with the family and it's unclear whether the uncle was trying to rescue the boy or had him in tow.
The victim is in his 30s and from the Kenosha area.
