Shawano County drowning victim identified

SHAWANO, Wis. (WSAU-Wheeler News) - Authorities have released the identity of a man who drowned in Shawano Lake in Northeast Wisconsin.

The Shawano County sheriff’s office say 56-year-old Steven Olewinski of West Allis drowned on Friday when he jumped in the lake from a boat to save his dog. Authorities say his wife threw a life preserver, but Olewinski was unable to reach it and he disappeared under water when she swam to him.

Olewinski’s wife and the dog made it out safely.
