Young man drowns in Marinette County

STEPHENSON – Officials received calls of a drowning Saturday just after 3 p.m.

Police say three young men were swimming together when one man went under and did not resurface.

Divers recovered the victim’s body several hours later. Michael Eugene Two-Rivers-Broeffle, a 20-year-old man of Green Bay, was pronounced dead at the scene.

Multiple agencies responded to the call, including the Department of Natural Resources.

Authorities say Wisconsin Public Service operators assisted by lowering the water level for the diver search teams.
