GREEN OAK TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) -- Authorities say a 34-year-old man has died and a 2-year-old girl was critically injured after apparently falling from a boat into about 41-degree water in Whitmore Lake.
Authorities in Livingston County's Green Oak Township tell the Livingston County Daily Press & Argus of Howell, the Detroit Free Press and The Detroit News they were dispatched on Sunday morning to the lake.
Authorities say two area residents saw an unoccupied aluminum boat with an outboard motor moving in circles near the middle of the lake about 30 miles northwest of Detroit. They used a paddleboat to get to the area and pulled the girl from the water. The man was found by rescuers and later pronounced dead.
Authorities say the girl was taken to a hospital in Ann Arbor for treatment.
