Sheboygan’s beachfront along Lake Michigan can be a wonderful recreation resource, but it can also be treacherous. On Thursday July 16th, Sheboygan was reminded of this when there was a near drowning of a 10-year-old boy at King Park. Thankfully a young man noticed the boy struggling. He aided the drowning boy to shore where he was taken to the hospital. We also saw on the news that a 19-year-old man drowned while saving two children from drowning at McKinley Beach in Milwaukee on July 18th. As we were preparing this press release, another unfortunate event happened where a kayaker lost his life off the shore of Deland Park on August 4th during dangerous conditions.
