MILLTOWN TOWNSHIP, Minn. (WCCO) – A late-night trip out on a lake with friends turned deadly for a 22-year-old St. Paul man.

The Polk County Sheriff’s Office got a call at 3:30 a.m. Sunday that a small motor boat had flipped on Antler Lake.

One of the four men on board had trouble swimming back to shore and called out for help. His friends were able to get to him but by that time he was underwater. They started CPR until emergency crews arrived to take over.

The man was transported to St. Croix Regional Medical Center where he was pronounced dead.

The victim’s name has not yet been released.
