Cave Point victim identified as investigation continues

The Door County Sheriff’s Department is still likely weeks away from knowing what may have killed a 35-year-old man at Cave Point County Park on Saturday afternoon. Emergency personnel were notified just before 2:40 p.m. that Zachary B. Nessman of Manitowoc collapsed and fell back into the water shortly after exiting. Several bystanders were able to pull him out of the water and provided life-saving efforts until emergency personnel could arrive. Members of the Sturgeon Bay and Jacksonport Fire Departments, Door County Emergency Services, and Door County Sheriff’s Department responded to the park and took over medical rescue efforts upon their arrival. Foul play is not suspected as of right now as the preliminary investigation points to it being an accidental near-drowning with medical complications. The autopsy was completed by the Dane County Medical Examiner’s Office on Monday, but the results will not be known for at least six weeks. The incident remains under investigation.
