RACINE COUNTY (WKOW) -- A rescue effort is now a recovery effort in Wind Lake.  Crews were called out for a possible drowning Wednesday afternoon.

The Wind Lake Fire Department told our Milwaukee affiliate that they are now looking for the body of a 77-year-old man who was with his wife and two dogs on a pontoon boat.

Racine County officials say the man fell out of the boat when he was reaching in the water to grab something that had fell out.  His wife and two dogs jump in after him, but the man went under and never resurfaced.  His wife and dogs were able to get to safety.

Wind Lake Fire Department Chief Rob Robbins says they have a tech team coming from Illinois to help.
