Skydiver Drowns In Lake Butte des Morts
The Winnebago County Sheriff’s Dive Team recovered the body of missing skydiver in Lake Butte des Morts yesterday afternoon shortly before 5:30 p.m. Sheriff’s officials say the call originally came in as a rescue for an overturned kayak, but it was quickly determined it was skydivers in the water. Two skydivers were doing a tandem jump when a storm came up and blew them off course away from the landing site and over the water. The customer was able to swim back to shore safely, but the professional instructor wasn’t located until the dive team recovered the body. The sky diving company is based in Omro.
