Man Pulled from Lake Mendota this morning

August 30, 2012 9:57 AM

One male individual has been taken to the hospital after he failed to surface outside the UW Limnology building.

His condition is currently not available.

Since this summer, there have been at least two rescue attempts on Lake Mendota for late-night swimmers. On June 22nd, a recent alumus from the Class of '12 drown swimming after bar-time.

My deepest sympathies go out to the friends and family of victims who lost their life while swimming in Lake Mendota. While drownings are rare, they have occured during the last decade I have been on campus. I encourage anyone swimming in the lake to use causion and never swim intoxicated.

I hope for the best in this situtation.
