On Sunday afternoon at approximately 3:00 p.m. CDT, four young men, Adam LaLuzerne, Kurt Ahonen, Dylan Abeyta, and Jeremy Wheat were walking down Sheboygan South Pier when a massive wave swept them from behind into lake Michigan.
By this point, Kurt, Adam, and Dylan were fighting the current trying to stay above water but the current was fast and hard to go against.
Jeremy was able to avoid the massive wave and being swept into the lake, and managed to get help to his friends. 22 year-old Dylan, a communications graduate from St. Norbert College in Green Bay, was saved by the Coast Guard as he was losing hope and trying to keep his head above water at around 3:45 p.m.
Adam, the accounting graduate, also from SNC, along with Kurt, the Computer Science student, are both still missing.
The Journal Sentinel reported:
The Sheboygan County Dive Team was unable to continue a dive operation because of the treacherous water conditions and will assess the lake conditions and make a decision of when they will resume operations on Monday morning. Boat and helicopter searches continue.
Here is what Dylan posted on Facebook, few hours after he was saved:
