SHEBOYGAN, Wis. - Rescue workers have recovered the body of a Sheboygan man who was swept into Lake Michigan by winds and high waves. Crews are still looking for a second man who was with him.
Sheboygan County deputies say searchers recovered the body of 37-year-old Kurt K. Netzer on Saturday afternoon.
Authorities say the two men and a woman were swept off a breakwall and into the water Friday. The woman was rescued.
Kayla Ortigoza tells The Sheboygan Press the other man is her 21-year-old brother, David Diener. She says he and Netzer went out to retrieve fishing gear that Diener had lost the night before, but conditions were worse than they thought.
She says Diener has a 1-year-old son. She says the family is devastated.
