REDGRANITE, Wis. (AP) - Authorities say a 49-year-old Green Bay man has drowned in the Redgranite Quarry.

A statement from the Redgranite Police Department on Thursday identified him as Daniel R. Whitemore.

Rescue crews were called to the quarry just before 6 p.m. Wednesday. Efforts to revive him were unsuccessful.

Police say alcohol appears to be a factor in this case.

An Appleton woman drowned in the same quarry in June. The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources describes the quarry as a six-acre lake that’s up to 163 feet deep.
