Boy drowns in Lake Depue

Posted by wlpo on June 30, 2010

The name of a 15 year old boy who drowned in Lake DePue has been released.

Bureau County Coroner Janice Wamhoff says Israel Puga is the drowning victim.  Puga apparently chased a ball into the lake around eight o’clock last night and never made it back out.  His body was pulled from the lake about an hour after he went in.

Counselors are at Depue School to help students today.
