Illinois Man Drowns

An Illinois man apparently drowned this weekend while he was swimming to a raft. James Spurgeon, of Lisle, Illinois, was pronounced dead Sunday afternoon. Witnesses saw him swimming to a raft when he began struggling and went underwater. After he failed to resurface, a witness jumped into the water and began searching, but it was estimated that the victim was under water for about 10 minutes. The county coroner is investigating what caused him to struggle, a prior medical condition and drugs or alcohol have already been ruled out. Read more here.
