A 6-year-old boy drowns at a popular beach. A teen dies after being swept into deep water on a floatie. The body of a boy pulled by a rip current out of a marked swim area isn’t found for days.

The drowning deaths of several people this summer occurred in swim areas that weren’t protected by lifeguards, and some believe their deaths could have been prevented.

“I believe a lifeguard could have saved them both,” said Sonja Blakeney.

She was speaking about her daughter, Jazmyn Patterson, who did get her nephew to safety after they flipped off a flotation device. But Patterson herself succumbed to Lake Michigan at South Haven.

The following is a list of nine drownings that occurred this year along Michigan’s shore of Lake Michigan during summertime daylight hours, when it could be expected lifeguards would be working.

The list was compiled using interviews, news reports and information compiled by the Great Lakes Surf Rescue Project.

June 6, Holland State Park – year-old Christian Ngabo of Ottawa County drowned after jumping from the pier. He was with his year-old brother who made it to shore after beachgoers tossed him a life ring. Ngabo was about 50 yards from shore when he went under in rough conditions. Emergency responders were summoned just before 5 p.m. His body was recovered on June 8.

June 6, Holland State Park – 6-year-old Iain Rowe of Ferrysburg drowned after disappearing while playing in water estimated to be at his waist level. He had gone to the beach with his mother, Miranda Rowe, who told MLive she left to use the restroom and couldn’t find him after returning about 10 minutes later. She searched the beach for about an hour before alerting police who were there searching for Christian Ngabo at about 5 p.m.. Iain’s body was found the next day. Miranda Rowe pled guilty to child neglect and was sentenced on Oct. 12 to days in jail.

June 16, South Haven’s South Beach – year-old Jazmyn Patterson of South Haven died a day after a nearby boater pulled her body from the water about 75 feet outside of the designated swim area. She had been on a flotation device with a 4-year-old child when it flipped, tossing both into the water. Patterson managed to get the child to safety before she went under. First-responders were summoned around p.m. She died the following day. Green flags were flying that day.
