AUTRAIN TOWNSHIP, MI-- Michigan State Police have released the name of a man who drowned Sunday in a boating accident in AuTrain Township.
Troopers from the Munising detachment say Robert Louis, 59, of downstate Lake Orion drowned when the 19-foot wooden boat he and six others were in tipped over. Louis tried to swim for the boat and wasn’t seen again.
The others were rescued by a group in a pontoon boat in the area. The pontoon went back to where the accident occurred but couldn’t find Louis.
The Alger County Dive Team recovered his body Monday around 3 p.m.
