Man critical after nearly drowning in Center Harbor

CENTER HARBOR – A fisherman whose boat capsized on Lake Winona late Sunday morning was taken to a local hospital with life-threatening injuries after he was pulled from the lake.

Center Harbor Fire Chief John Schlemmer said the victim was gravely ill.

"We're not sure, we may have had a drowning," he said.

Rescue crews were sent to 636 Winona Road at 10:37 a.m. after a report of a man swimming by his overturned boat, Schlemmer said.

A lakeside homeowner with a boat pulled the man to shore, where paramedics were engaged in CPR, trying to save his life.

He was taken to Lakes Region General Hospital, the chief said.
