Lake Saturday Three persons drowned in Wisconsin over the weekend, including a Chicago man who died in Sugar Bush lake, five miles northeast of Lac du Flambeau in Vilas county. Undershcriff John Schroeder of Vilas county said the victim was Joseph W. Faust, 45, whose body was found about three hours after he fell out of a rowboat at noon Saturday. The overturned boat was found with the anchor out, indicating Faust either fell from the boat while standing up or suffered a sudden illness- Faust and his wife were vacationing at a resort in the Lac du Flambeau area. He was born June 3, 1912, in Chicago. The body was taken to the Bolger Funeral Home at Minocqua, and then sent to Chicago for services and burial this week. Another of the drowning victims was a young father who sacrificed his own life to save his three-year- old daughter after an outboard motorboat capsized, the Associated Press reported. Rolla Fosnock, 31, of Camp Lake, Kcnosha County, kept his daughter, Victoria, afloat until help arrived, then sank beneath the surface and drowned. The mishap occurred on Camp Lake Sunday night, Fosnock and his daughter were thrown into the lake when the motorboat overturned. Four Chicago men were first to reach them. They grabbed the little girl and handed her to Waller Nowaczyn- ski, Chicago, who was in another boat. Nowaczynski applied artificial respiration in the boat and revived the child. Meanwhile, Fosnock was brought to the surface within three minutes but could not be revived. David Brieski, 24, of La Crosse, survived by his widow and three youngsters, drowned Saturday night while attempting to swim the West Channel of the Mississippi River near here. His body was recovered Sunday. : 1
