A 73-year-old Rhinelander man died Monday after he was discovered unresopnsive near a capsized boat in Jennie Webber Lake, according to the Oneida County Sheriff’s Department.
Emergency crews were called at about 7 p.m. to the lake, which lies about halfway between Rhinelander and Sugar Camp in Oneida County, for a report of a capsized boat. First responders, with the aid of citizens, retrieved the man from the water.
Crews then transported the man from the lake to a Rhinelander hospital, where he later died.
Oneida County Sheriff’s officials have identified the man as Thomas Lambert.
