Green Bay man drowns in Peshtigo River

A Green Bay man is dead after a tubing accident on the Peshtigo River Saturday afternoon.

Forty-year-old Anthony Rogers was tubing with friends downstream from Don Brooks Park in Crivitz when he disappeared under water.

Rogers went missing at approximately 3:41 and he was pronounced dead at about 6 p.m.

Police say it appears that Rogers was not wearing a lifejacket and may not have been a strong swimmer.

The Marinette County Sheriff’s Department was assisted by 7 other agencies.

The incident is still under investigation.
