Teenager Drowns in Lake Michigan Over Weekend

A teenage boy drowned in Lake Michigan over the weekend.

Deputies say they were called to the Cross Village Beach just after 4:00pm on Saturday.

Dive teams later recovered the body of Robert Moran, who was pronounced dead on the scene.

Deputies say he was about 40 yards off shore when he went under.

Moran was from Portage, Michigan and visiting family in the area.

The National Weather Service says rip currents may have been a factor at the time of the drowning.
