Roscommon Co. Deputies Respond to 2 Near Drownings on Higgins Lake

Roscommon County deputies responded to a pair of near drownings on Higgins Lake Saturday.

Deputies say the first happened around South State Park.

That man was pulled out of the water and onto a boat by some friends.

The second happened a short time later near Flag Point.

Marine deputies rescued a man who was struggling to swim in about 60 feet of water.

They got to him just as he was about to go under.

The sheriff is reminding people to make sure their boats have proper flotation devices for everyone on board.
