Man dies while swimming in Fox River at Wedron

Posted by wlpo on August 1, 2011

Swimming with friends is a good time, especially on a hot summer day.  But it can also be dangerous.

A 26 year old man from Chicago died while swimming in the Fox River at Wedron.  Investigators say Justin Daniel and his buddies were jumping into the river from a sandstone bluff at Ayers Landing when Daniel jumped in and didn’t come up.

His body was found several hours later and he was pronounced dead.  An autopsy was performed Monday.
