Woman, boy nearly drowns trying to save 3 young swimmers in Star Lake

SAYNER, WI (WTAQ) - A woman and an 8-year-old boy almost drowned Tuesday, during an attempt to save three young swimmers in a lake in far northern Wisconsin.

Vilas County sheriff's deputies said two women were apparently trying to save the 3 youngsters who were swimming in Star Lake near Sayner.

A family friend in a boat pulled out a swimmer and a rescuer after they had gone under -- and they raced to paramedics waiting at a boat landing.

The 8-year-old was taken to a hospital in Woodruff, and the 47-year-old woman was flown to a Wausau hospital. Their conditions were not disclosed.

The others escaped harm. No names have been released.
