Fredonia Man Drowns in Lake Erie

A Fredonia man is dead after an accidental drowning Wednesday night at Lake Erie’s Barcelona break wall.

30-year-old Victor Arce Jr. was swimming with friends when he went under the water and didn’t resurface. The friends tried to find him, but couldn’t. He had been under water for 15 to 20 minutes before rescuers arrived on the scene.

Arce was taken to Westfield Memorial Hospital where he was pronounced dead a short time later, according to an e-mail sent to WESB and The HERO by the Chautauqua County Sheriff's office.
