Michigan Authorities have recovered the body of a 36-year-old man who disappeared after jumping into the water last Wednesday to save an 8-year old boy. Searchers found the body Saturday afternoon around 2:30pm.
A woman called 911 Wednesday evening, saying her boyfriend and son were in the water off the beach in Berlin Township, about 30 miles northeast of Toledo.
The couple and their three and eight year old boys ages 3 and 8 were on an unanchored boat, when the 8-year-old, who was wearing a life jacket, jumped into the water but couldn’t return to the boat. The man jumped in to save the child, but never surfaced.
