Fifth Life Claimed On The Saginaw Bay In 2006 Aug 7, 2006 12:12 PM EDT (TV5) -- Investigators continue to search for answers in a tragic weekend drowning on Saginaw bay. One man died after going swimming just a few miles from a popular marina. Forty-five year old Edward L. Suisse of Lainsberg was with a fishing companion in this boat August 5th when the two decided to go swimming. The 23-year-old man made it back to the boat Suisse did not. Rescuers with the U.S. Coast Guard and Tuscola County Sheriff's Department were called into action. Divers recovered the body in the morning on August 6th west of Fish Point some five miles off shore. An autopsy will be conducted. The sheriff's department says alcohol may have been a factor. Suisse's death marks the 5th drowning in the Saginaw Bay this year. What a waste of life!
