Posted: Updated:

Police say a man was spotted floating in Burt Lake, but it was too late to save him when he was pulled to shore.

People along Oosting Road spotted him around 2:00pm Sunday and waded into the lake and started CPR until emergency crews arrived.

EMS personnel tried to revive Roscoe Ballard of Northville and Burt Lake, but could not save him.

Investigators say Ballard had waded into the lake to work on a buoy that was in about 3 feet of water. He was found about 5 to 10 minutes later in the lake.
