LINCOLN COUNTY, WI (WTAQ) - A Tomahawk man who drowned after a dog pushed him underwater was identified Monday as 67-year-old David Lewicki.
Lincoln County authorities said Lewicki and the dog jumped from a pontoon boat into the Spirit Flowage to cool off Sunday. When the man tried to get the pet closer to the boat, the dog climbed on him and pushed him down one or two times.
The dog escaped unharmed, but Lewicki went under. His body was recovered a couple hours later in five-and-a-half feet of water.
