LAKE CITY, Mich. (AP) - Authorities say a 14-year-old boy has died while swimming at Lake Missaukee in Michigan’s northern Lower Peninsula.

Missaukee County sheriff’s deputies responded around midday Sunday to a marked swimming area of Missaukee County Park in Lake City.

The Cadillac News and MLive.com report Bryce Allison of the Wexford County community of Manton apparently fell off an inflatable tube and had trouble swimming. Two other people tried to help him before he went under the water.

He was pronounced dead at a hospital. The death was under investigation.

This story has been corrected to show the boy who died was from Wexford County, not Missaukee County.
