RIB MOUNTAIN, WI (WTAQ) - Authorities now say that a Stevens Point man who drowned near Wausau last Saturday was 49-year-old Vang Yang.
He was swimming in a private two-acre pond in the town of Rib Mountain when he went under. It happened during a family gathering.
Marathon County sheriff's investigators said alcohol was not a factor, and there was no evidence of any alcohol at the gathering.
Yang's body was found about two-and-a-half hours after relatives called for help.
The medical examiner's office ruled Yang's death as a drowning.
