An Illinois man has died after he was pulled out of Donnell Lake in Cass County this month. The Cass County Sheriff’s Department says 50-year-old Parish Swanson was out on a dock in the 17,000 block of Donnell Lake Street the afternoon of June 8 when he was pushed into the water by his sons as they were playing around with him. After a short time underwater, Swanson was brought back to shore by his sons and CPR was given. Swanson was taken to Elkhart General Hospital and listed in critical condition. The sheriff’s department says he has died as a result of the injuries he sustained. It adds no foul play or suspicious intent are suspected, and the investigation has been closed out as an accidental death.
