PERU, Ind. - A man died early Sunday after Indiana Conservation officers pulled him from Mississinewa Lake near Peru, Ind.
Department of Natural Resources officials said Adron Robinson, 32, was swimming across a cove to join friends who were standing on the other side, but he never made it.
His group of friends called conservation officers for help. Robinson was eventually pulled from the water, but emergency crews were not able to revive him.
Peru is 80 miles north of Indianapolis, east of Logansport.
