PORT BURWELL, Ont. -- Elgin OPP officers are investigating the death of a 24-year-old man from Langton on Thursday night.

Police say Herman Teichroeb disappeared while swimming in front of the West Beach in Port Burwell.

Two of the males made it back to shore safely with the assistance of other men.

Police and fire crews found the man's body but attempts to revive him failed and he was pronounced dead at the Tillsonburg Hospital.
