STEPHENSON, WI (WTAQ) - Marinette County officials say three young men were swimming together, when one went under and didn't resurface.

The call of a drowning was reported just after 3 p.m. Saturday.

The victim, 20-year-old Michael Eugent Two-Rivers-Broeffle, was recovered several hours later by divers. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

Multiple agencies responded, including the Department of Natural Resources. Authorities say Wisconsin Public Service operators helped out by lowering the water level for the diver search teams.
