space
The body of a 24-year-old Appleton man was recovered this morning from a town of Upham lake following a drowning early Tuesday evening.

The victim’s name is being withheld pending notification of family.

Langlade County Sheriff Bill Greening said the man had been at Deep Woods Lake with friends when he went under the water while being pulled on an innertube behind a boat.

The lake is located off Forest Road in the northern portion of the county.

At 6:06 p.m., the sheriff department’s 911 center received a call for assistance on the report an individual was having trouble in the water. A fisherman and others on the lake attempted to render aid but they were unsuccessful.

Sheriff’s deputies along with rescue units from both the Antigo and Elcho fire departments were dispatched to the scene. The Oneida County Sheriff Department’s dive team also responded to the location, scanning the water for hours before the search was suspended due to darkness.

The search resumed this morning with additional assistance of the Department of Natural Resources.

Greening said the body was discovered through the use of an underwater camera and it was brought ashore at approximately 9 a.m.

The sheriff indicated that an investigation into the circumstances surrounding the drowning is ongoing.
