HUNTSVILLE — A Piqua man was pulled from Indian Lake over the weekend and is continuing to be treated at Grant Medical Center in Columbus.
Dave L. Shellenberg, 73, of Piqua, was first transported to Mary Rutan Hospital in Bellefontaine and then to Grant Medical Center in Columbus after the reported incident took place at the River Run Harbor, 7634 State Route 368, Huntsville. His condition was upgraded to fair Monday after being in critical condition Sunday.
On Sunday at approximately 10:54 a.m., the report came in of a man who was found in the water at Indian Lake. According to the Logan County Sheriff’s Office, a passerby found Shellenberg in the water and called for help. The passerby was then found hanging onto the sea wall attempting to pull Shellenberg out of the water when deputies arrived.
Shellenberg may have attempted to go into the water after a dog, as a retractable leash was found near the water.
“That’s a possibility,” Logan County Sheriff Andrew Smith said. Smith stated that there was no dog found near Shellenberg. Shellenberg also reportedly had fishing equipment in his vehicle at the time of this incident.
The Logan County Sheriff’s Office is continuing to investigate this incident.
