WAUSAU, WI (WTAQ) - Authorities continue to investigate three weekend drownings in north central Wisconsin.
In Wausau, an 18-year-old man disappeared Saturday afternoon in Man-Made Lake off shore from the city's Sunnyvale Park. Investigators did not know what led to the incident.
Others in the park pulled the man from the water and tried CPR until witnesses could get him to a hospital where he died.
In Vilas County, sheriff's deputies said a 77-year-old man fell from his boat while it was being towed by another boat Saturday morning on Catfish Lake near Eagle River. The man died at a hospital a short time later.
Also, authorities said a 28-year-old man swam across the St. Croix River into Wisconsin, and was heading back to the Minnesota side when he drowned. He was found Saturday evening close to where he started at Rush City Minnesota.
None of the victims' names were immediately released.
