CASS COUNTY, Mich. -- A 24-year-old man has died, two days after he was pulled from the water at Dewey Lake in Cass County.
Abdi Adan, from Wheaton, Illinois, was kayaking with his brother and sister on Dewey Lake when he tried swimming a life jacket out to his sister and disappeared under the water.
He was not wearing a life vest, and neighbors say the man couldn't swim.
Bystanders called 911 and one nearby family came to help. He was found in about 15 feet of water and neighbors performed CPR until emergency crews arrived.
Neighbors say Dewey Lake is extremely shallow near the shore but dramatically drops off 10 to 15 feet out.
