Near drowning in Cass County prevented by private citizens


SILVER CREEK TOWNSHIP (WKZO) -- Cass County Deputies say they responded to a near drowning on Dewey Lake in Silver Creek Township early Saturday afternoon.

They say the victim was swimming a life jacket out to his sister, who was in a Kayak, when he yelled for help and then went under and didn’t come up.

Residents on the lake and visitors mounted a rescue effort and managed to drag 24-year-old Abdi Adan of Wheaton, Illinois to shore, and began C.P.R.

EMT’s arrived and took over, managing to get a pulse.

He was airlifted to a hospital in South Bend for treatment and evaluation. His current condition is not known.
