Missouri man drowns in Lake Michigan after saving 2 boys
RACINE, Wis. (AP) — A Missouri man who died after rescuing two young relatives from the choppy waters of Lake Michigan is the fourth person to drown in the lake this summer in the southeastern Wisconsin city of Racine.
Racine County sheriff’s officials on Monday identified the man who drowned Sunday as 40-year-old Thomas Walker, though they didn’t say where in Missouri he lived.
Authorities say Walker went into the lake at North Beach to rescue the boys. The children made it out of the water, but Walker did not.
The National Weather Service warned of dangerous swimming conditions that day.
