Authorities in Douglas County are investigating an apparent drowning that happened over the weekend.
It happened Saturday afternoon on Lake Ida, which is about nine miles north of Alexandria.
According to a release from the Douglas County sheriff, a man was pulled out of the water by neighbors at about 4:49 p.m. and brought to shore, where CPR was started.
First responders soon arrived and took over CPR, but despite their efforts, the victim was ultimately pronounced dead.
The sheriff says the man was found "approximately 30-40 feet from shore and in 4-8 feet of water," and was not wearing a life vest.
His name is being withheld pending notification of family.
