Minnesota Man, 26, Dies After Lake Michigan Rescue
GOLDEN TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) — A Minnesota man has died after being pulled from Lake Michigan off a state park in western Michigan.
WGHN-AM and Mlive.com reports that the Oceana County sheriff’s department says 26-year-old Vikrant Kole of Woodbury, Minn., died Tuesday.
Authorities say Kole was swimming near Silver Lake State Park on Sunday evening when he disappeared under the water.
They say a dive team pulled him from the water after about 35 minutes, and a helicopter flew him to Spectrum Health hospital in Grand Rapids.
The park is in Golden Township, about 35 miles north-northwest of Muskegon.
