TOMAHAWK, Wis (WSAU) A 67-year-old man drowned in Tomahawk yesterday.
Lincoln County deputies say David Lewicki of Tomahawk was on a pontoon boat around 4:30pm. He'd gone into the water of the Spirit Flowage to cool off and to help a dog that was in the water.
The man and the dog struggled in the water. Onlookers called 9-1-1 when he didn't resurface.
The victim's body was recovered two hours later in about five-and-a-half feet of water. He was pronounced dead at the scene.
