MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Barry Schramel, 50, drowned while trying to grab an inflatable swimming toy on Knaus Lake, according to the Stearns County Sheriff’s office.

It happened Friday night at about 5 p.m. Witnesses say Schramel was trying to get a floatie that drifted away when he went under water after two wakes struck him.

The Cold Spring resident still had a pulse when he was pulled from the water 20 minutes later, but the sheriff’s office says he later died at an area hospital.
