Authorities say a 28-year-old man has died after collapsing into the water as he was fishing at a pond in southeastern Michigan.

The Oakland County sheriff's department says the man's friend said he appeared to have a seizure on Sunday afternoon while standing in the water in Holly Township. Rescue crews responded and he was found underwater by divers. He was taken to a hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

The sheriff's department says the man was from Grand Blanc. His name wasn't immediately released. The case was turned over to state police for investigation.
