Swimmer fatally struck by boat on Gull Lake

A man was fatally struck by a boat while swimming in a western Michigan lake over the weekend, police said.

The man was hit Sunday afternoon on Gull Lake near Kalamazoo. The man was brought to shore for lifesaving measures but was pronounced dead from his injuries at the scene, according to the Kalamazoo County Sheriff’s Office.

The boat operator was released after being given a blood-alcohol test, Kalamazoo County Undersheriff Jim VanDyken said. Investigators were awaiting those test results.

Authorities didn’t immediately release the identity of the man who died.  (AP)
