CREATED Aug. 4, 2013
DUNBAR, Wis. (AP) -- A 37-year-old Clintonville man accidentally drowned while camping alone in Marinette County.
According to a county sheriff's news release, deputies received a 911 call at about 8:30 p.m. Saturday that someone had fallen from some rocks into the water while taking photographs at Twelve Foot Falls County Park in the Town of Dunbar.
Witnesses pulled the man to shore and tried to resuscitate him but were unsuccessful.
The sheriff says he was camping alone. Deputies don't suspect foul play. The man's name wasn't immediately released because his family hadn't been notified.
