DNR investigating drowning in Culver


A 22-year-old Plymouth Man is dead after drowning in Culver's Lake Maxinkuckee.

Department of Natural Resources officials tell FOX 28 Valentin Sirghi was swimming with his friends off of Culver Beach Sunday night. Around 7:30 they report that he disappeared.

Around 30 minutes later Sirghi was pulled from the water. Emergency responders attempted to do CPR on the man, but it was no use. He was pronounced dead at a local hospital around 8:30.

DNR officials say an autopsy will be conducted but there is no word on when that will take place.
