Journal Gazette

The 30-year-old man that drowned Sunday at a DeKalb County campground, has been identified by Indiana Department of Natural Resources officials as Ahmad Sediq Safi, of Ft. Wayne.

Safi began struggling while swimming in a private lake at Indian Springs Campground about 1:30 p.m. and didn't resurface after going underwater, a release from the DNR said.

The Steuben County Underwater Rescue and Recovery Team recovered his body shortly after 3 p.m., the release said. 

State conservation officers, who are investigating the incident, encouraged Hoosiers to wear a personal flotation device when in or near water. The news release didn't indicate whether one had been worn in this instance.
