Ohio man critically injured in swimming mishap

Indiana conservation officers are investigating a tragic swimming accident involving Bradley Heyne, 26, of Coldwater Ohio.

Around 6 p.m. Saturday, Heyne was swimming with friends at the Lake Wawasee sandbar when he dove head first off a boat, striking his head on the shallow sandbar.

Other boaters quickly pulled Heyne to shore and began giving the unresponsive man CPR. Paramedics transported him to a local hospital where he remains in critical condition.

Investigating conservation officers remind anyone recreating around the water this summer to be aware of your surroundings, and to wear a personal flotation device whenever possible.
