The Michigan State Police are reporting of a kayaker drowning this morning in Newaygo County. At 3:20 am troopers were dispatched to Martin Lake on a report on a drowning of a 26 yr old male.
It's being reported that two friends were kayaking when they both flipped, filling their kayaks with water. One of the men couldn't swim and drown while the other was unable to save him or pull him to shore. Newaygo Sheriff's Office dive team were able to recover the body.
This incident is still under investigation but alcohol appears to play a factor.
