Print Article

Officials on Tuesday were investigating the death of a man who apparently drowned in McGregor Lake, west of Marion.

According to Flathead County Sheriff Brian Heino, an older man was paddleboarding when he went into the water.

His body was recovered Tuesday. His identity and residency wasn’t immediately known, the sheriff said.

More information will be announced as it becomes available, Heino said.

The reported drowning is the second such incident in Northwest Montana this week.

Lake County officials were investigating a possible drowning after a man died in Flathead Lake over the weekend.

Sheriff Don Bell says 34-year-old Michael John Chernikoff, of Polson, got out of a boat to swim to Bird Island, which is northeast of Polson. However, he started struggling on the swim back to the boat.

Witnesses pulled him out of the water and called 911, but efforts to revive him were unsuccessful. His body was sent to the state crime lab for an autopsy.
