Owosso man dies while swimming across pond

GREENBUSH TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) - Authorities say a 43-year-old Owosso man has died while trying to swim across a pond at a Clinton County park.

The Lansing State Journal reports Billy Lee Loburg was at the beach at Motz Park in Greenbush Township on Sunday when he tried to swim across the pond. Authorities say he was about two-thirds of the way across the 300-yard-wide pond when he began struggling.

A person nearby found Loburg within minutes and brought him to shore. Loburg was taken to an area hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

The park is located about 20 miles north of Lansing.
