Body of Cottage Grove man found two days after falling into lake

BAYFIELD COUNTY, WI (WTAQ) - The body of a southern Wisconsin man was found Sunday, two days after he fell into a lake in the far northwest part of the state. 

Searchers found Gerald Buss of Cottage Grove in about 10 feet water on Lake Namakagon in Bayfield County. 

Authorities said Buss and a friend were fishing when he fell into the water on Friday afternoon. A seat cushion was thrown to him -- but Buss couldn't hang on, and he lost his grip and went under. 

The friend signaled other fishermen on the water, and they called 911 immediately. A search continued until the body was discovered around 12:15 p.m. Sunday. 

The coroner's office ruled the death as an accidental cold water drowning.
