PORT AUSTIN (WKZO) -- A Hamtramck man is dead after drowning in Lake Huron.

According to authorities, the victim and his brother tried to swim across the break wall gap of Port Austin Harbor Saturday evening. The two reportedly became exhausted in the choppy waters and while one of the men managed to make it to the rock break wall, the other slipped below the surface of the water.

Members of the Harbor Beach Coast guard were able to save the surviving brother and attempted CPR on the victim, after pulling him from the water, to no avail.
