LAKE TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) - Authorities have identified a Cincinnati man who died in Lake Michigan while rescuing his 12-year-old nephew from a rip current.
The Traverse City Record-Eagle reports ( http://bit.ly/P2bpeX ) 40-year-old Kevin Schlake of Cincinnati was vacationing with family in Michigan's northern Lower Peninsula.
The Benzie County sheriff's department says Schlake pulled the child to safety Sunday at Peterson Beach in Lake Township before going under.
