Story & photos by: Wayne Gauger

A young boy inner-tubing behind a boat went under the water which prompted his sister and their step-father to try finding him in the water. The man was able to get the boy back in the boat, but he then went under. The kids, their mother, and two dogs made it back to shore. Firefighters were paged to the river near Memorial Park in Wausau around 2 p.m. Thursday.

The Marathon County Dive Team was also brought in. The wind conditions made it dangerous for the search. It was challenging for the dive team under the water, and they were using sonar equipment. A helicopter was paged at the beginning of the search, but was called off due to the windy conditions, which is also why a drone was not used in the search. The search was called off at 9:15PM Thursday. Search crews will be back Friday morning at 7AM. WGWI-PUBLICATIONS will follow this situation and bring you any updates on our Facebook Page Search  WGWI-PUBLICATIONS.
