Information:   On 07/02/11 at approximately 5:09pm, a 911 call was received by the Green Lake County Sheriff's Office reporting a victim of a drowning on Lake Puckaway in Green Lake County. The Green Lake County Sheriff's Office Boat Patrol responded along with other Patrol Deputies. Also responding were Princeton and Markesan Fire Department water rescue units, Marquette Fire Department, Markesan Ambulance Service, and Markesan Emergency Management, as well as the Green Lake County Coroner's Office. A 25 year old male subject was boating with a friend when he jumped into the lake to swim. A short time later as the boat drifted away too quickly, the victim was unable to get back to the boat, and went under the water. A perimeter was established and a search was begun, with the search assisted by several other boaters on the lake. At approximately 8:10pm, a Fire department boat operating a drag located the victim and he was removed from the water. The name of the deceased subject is withheld at this time pending notification of family. The victim was not wearing a life jacket at the time of the incident. Foul play is not suspected.

Release prepared by:   Sergeant Jeffrey B. Kiener
