Men drowned during work break
The two young men had been doing construction work at a beachfront home.
By Patrick MALONEY, and Sharon HO, Free Press Reporters
Rondeau -- A day after two men drowned in Lake Erie's choppy waters, reminders of the failed rescue attempts still were scattered along the shoreline yesterday.
Packaging for resuscitators and defibrillator patches were among medical debris left in the sand where rescuers tried Thursday evening to save two Chatham-Kent men, both weak swimmers, who spent 30 minutes lost in the lake near Rondeau Provincial Park.
The double drowning raised the London region's death toll from water mishaps to seven since the start of June.
After working all day on a beachfront home, construction workers John MARTENS, 26, of Chatham, and Jacob KLASSEN, 23, of nearby Louisville -- related by marriage -- entered the lake.
Rescue crews were called soon after, but the two were pronounced dead at a Chatham hospital.
A third construction worker escaped to call for help.
Despite the double drowning, area residents said water conditions Thursday appeared anything but deadly.
"(MARTENS and KLASSEN) were down in what I consider the shallow area," said Tom TOWNSEND, who witnessed much of the rescue attempt.
"(It) was a nice day -- there was an undertow, but not what I consider dangerous," TOWNSEND added.
He said he was impressed with the rescue efforts, which included police officers, firefighters and two search boats.
The water around Rondeau Provincial Park is generally calm, said area business owner Lori O'SHAY/SHEA.
"You just don't think about it," she said.
"I was totally shocked. When something like this happens, you certainly do think of (the potential dangers)."
The owner of The Stone Men, a Ridgetown construction company that employed KLASSEN and MARTENS, declined comment.
Though the number of drownings in the region this season seems high, one expert said seven deaths in one month isn't uncommon.
"Drownings peak in the summer and cluster around weekends -- especially long weekends," said Ed BEAN of the Livesaving Society of Canada.
Other Area Water Deaths
- July 5: Patrick Darrell GRAY/GREY, 34, dies after a diving injury in Trout Lake in Innerkip.
- July 3: Adam MUSIALKAEWACZ, 15, of Hamilton, drowns near Cape Croker.
- July 2: Tyler REID, 6, from Bluewater, drowns at Rotary Beach in Goderich.
- June 25: James DRABICK, 22, of Caledonia, drowns in Trout Lake.
- June 4: John WATSON, 43, of Parkhill, dies after his canoe capsizes at Parkhill Conservation Area.
