Death of Sheboygan Falls Windsurfer Under Investigation

by

FOND DU LAC, WI (WHBL) - State and local authorities are investigating the death of an experienced windsurfer on Lake Winnebago. Searchers found the body of a 71-year-old Sheboygan Falls man on Saturday evening along the shore near Fond du Lac. That was about two-and-a-half hours after his windsurfing board was found washed up along Winnebago’s east shore. Investigators are waiting for a final medical report on the victim before determining the cause of death. They do not suspect foul play. Gusty winds appeared to play a role in the incident. The state D-N-R is heading the investigation into the mishap. The victim’s name was not immediately released, pending notification of relatives. The owner of a windsurfing business told the Fond du Lac Reporter that the man had enjoyed the sport for many years.
