One Man Drowned at a Lagoon in Milwaukee

LNM,

A person drowned at the Milwaukee’s South Side on Saturday evening. The victim had gone to the Kosciuszko Park lagoon near 8th and Lincoln.

The officials received the report of the incident at around 7.15 p.m. According to the officials, two men had gone swimming in the lagoon. They reached about 30 feet from the shore when they started getting anxious.

Some people saw the incident, and two people and three Milwaukee police officers went into the lagoon to save the victims. Both the men were brought out of the lagoon, but one died at the scene.

One of the people who entered the lagoon to save the two men said, “ We bumped into him. He was standing straight up because the water is kind of deep. The mud had him kind of still down there, so I had to go up under the water and lift him up and they pulled us back on the lot.”

The second victim was transported to the St. Luke’s Medical Center. His condition was not revealed.

According to the officials, both the men were in their 40s or 50s.

A police officer was also taken to the hospital for treatment as a precaution.

The officials have warned people to be careful while going for swim in the lagoon.
