Man found dead in northeastern Minnesota lake

BABBITT, Minn. – A 51-year-old man apparently drowned in a northeastern Minnesota lake.

The St. Louis County Sheriff’s Office says deputies received a report of a water emergency on Birch Lake near Sand Island at about 12:45 p.m. Friday.

A man had fallen out of a small boat near a houseboat where he was staying. He was not wearing a life jacket.

A dive team later found his body. His identity is being withheld until his relatives can be notified.
