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.
