Kayaker Drowns In Lake Huron


When their kayak started taking on water, Sunday, DNR conservation officers say an Ann Arbor family was dumped into Lake Huron off Huron County’s Point Aux Barques.

Other boaters in the area rescued a woman and their 5 and 8 year old sons, but the husband and father, 42-year-old Christopher Peterson, drowned. His body was recovered by Huron County Sheriff divers from 14-feet of water after authorities searched the area near Port Austin for four hours.

The adults were not wearing life jackets.
