Weekend Drowning At Goose Island
Terry Jones and Gary Willis of La Crosse stopped on a sandbar Saturday afternoon. Jones went into the water for a swim, and began struggling. Willis couldn't reach him, and went to Goose Island for help. The La Crosse County Sheriff's department and other agencies searched for about two hours before finding Jones's body. There was a strong current, and the water was about 10 feet deep where Jones went swimming.
