Michigan man, 91, drowns while checking hunting traps

SWAN CREEK TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) — Police say a 91-year-old man who probably was checking his hunting traps has drowned in a ditch.

Saginaw County Undersheriff Mike Gomez tells the Saginaw News there was a 6-foot drop from the top of the ditch to the water. The victim was Robert Mendicki, who lived in St. Charles and served in the Navy at the end of World War II.

Sheriff’s deputies were called Sunday by the owner of a greenhouse in Swan Creek Township. Mendicki’s truck was parked there, but he wasn’t around.
