(Clear Lake)-Authorities say a man who may have suffered a medical problem while tubing at Clear Lake was pronounced dead at a Mason City hospital in northern Iowa.
The Iowa Natural Resources Department says 28-year-old Daniel Linderman of Waukee fell off a tube into the water Saturday afternoon at about 2:30. The department says he appeared to suffer the medical problem while swimming back to the boat that had been pulling the tube. He went face down in the water for a time, although he was wearing a life jacket. Another person on the boat tried to keep Linderman’s head above the water.
A DNR Officer was nearby and immediately rushed to the scene and, along with the other person were able to get Linderman’s body into a DNR boat.
