Man Dies After Possible Drowning in Silver Lake

A man is dead after it’s suspected he drowned in Silver Lake on Sunday.

It happened at the north end of Silver Lake in Oceana County’s Golden Township.

The sherrif’s office says Rabih Othman of Dearborn was in Silver Lake Sunday.

The people with Othman were putting a tube in the lake but lost control of it.

Othman was going after it, but started to struggle and went under.

A 19-year-old Hart man in another boat  jumped in to help Othman until a jet ski got to them and pulled them to safety.

Once ashore, they continued trying to resuscitate him until he was taken to the hospital.

He was pronounced dead at Hackley Lakeshore Hospital in Shelby.
