WESCOTT - Authorities have recovered the body of a man who jumped in a Shawano County lake to rescue his 10-year-old son.

The body was found after authorities resumed a search of Shawano Lake early Thursday.



Shawano County Sheriff Adam Bieber says the boy was tubing on the lake without a life jacket Wednesday and lost his grip while trying to get back on a pontoon boat.  Bieber says the boy's father jumped in the water, and the boat carrying the boy's grandfather and nine-year-old brother drifted away.

Sheriff's officials found the 10-year-old boy in the water near a buoy.

MILWAUKEE - The victims of a plane crash in Milwaukee have been identified as the chief operating officer of a Boston capital investment firm and his daughter.

Summit Partners said in a statement Thursday that the victims of Wednesday's crash are Joseph Trustey and his daughter, Anna.

They were traveling to the Midwest for a college visit.

Federal investigators will try to determine why the single-engine plane crashed and erupted in flames at Timmerman Airport on Milwaukee's northwest side. Neighbors whose houses border the airport witnessed the crash at about 6 p.m. but say the flames and smoke made it impossible for them to help.

Witness Ken Gipp says the plane was flying very low when the right wing hit the ground and a wall of flames ignited.
