Four Area Men Taken For Treatment After Boat Capsizes In Lake Michigan

 

Four men are being treated for exposure after their boat capsized in Lake Michigan near Algoma Friday morning.

Kewaunee County Sheriff Matt Joski says his department received a call at 6:28 a.m. about a capsized boat in the waters of Lake Michigan about 100 feet off shore near the Algoma City Harbor. Joski says a nearby charter vessel rescued one of the men and the other three were able to swim to shore.

Joski says the 19-foot Lund watercraft is owned by 25-year-old Kyle Lemens of Luxemburg. Also in the boat were 40-year-old Billy Charles of Forestville, 24-year-old Michael Bouche of Casco, and 37-year-old Jesse Jonet of Luxemburg.

All four were taken to medical facilities in Green Bay for treatment after spending time in the 40-degree water.

The Kewaunee County Sheriff's Department, Algoma Police Department, Algoma Fire & Rescue, Department of Natural Resources and the U.S. Coast Guard responded.

Joski says the Coast Guard continues to investigate the incident.
